Fellow Spotlight: Thessia Machado

The unearthly sounds of electricity

Thessia Machado, the spring 2017 semester's Inga Maren Otto Fellow in Music Composition, performs electronic and electro-acoustic experimental music with hand-made and modified instruments. In this video, she plays an instrument she recently built: an analog synthesizer-circuit controlled by the image supplied from a cathode-ray-tube (CRT) baby monitor.
