RYRAL – Tom DeFanti, Phil Morton, Dan Sandin and Bob Snyder (1976)

RYRAL is a realtime audio video performance by Tom DeFanti (creating computer animation with the GRaphics Symbiosis System or GRASS), Phil Morton (“up in the kitchen keepin’ track”), Dan Sandin (processing video with a Sandin Image Processor), Bob Snyder (performing experimental electronic music on an analog EMU synthesizer) and an uncredited dancer. This Media Art project was created and performed in April 1976 at the second Electronic Visualization Event (EVE II) in Chicago. EVE II took place at The University of Illinois Chicago.

Documentation of the performance was later exhibited by Diane Kirkpatrick in her exhibition Chicago: The City and Its Artists 1945-1978 at The University of Michigan Museum of Art March 17 – April 23 1978.

Documentation of EVE II – Phil Morton, Bob Snyder and Guenther Tetz (1976)

The Second Electronic Visualization Event took place at The University of Illinois Chicago Circle Campus in 1976. This documentation features Bob Snyder on EMU Synthesizer, Phil Morton on the Sandin Image Processor by Dan Sandin and Guenther Tetz on the GRASS (GRaphics Symbiosis System) by Tom DeFanti. In Morton’s words these artists perform live realtime audio and video synthesis “using both analog and digital computers as ‘visual instruments’…” Other artists credited with participation in the Electronic Visualization Events between 1975 and 1978 include Drew Browning, Larry Cuba, Barbara Latham, John Manning, Faramarz Rahbar, Ed Rankus, Michael Sterling, Barbara Sykes and Jane Veeder. – jonCates

General Motors – Phil Morton (1976)

Phil Morton’s General Motors video art work was created in 1976. Then based in Chicago, the late Phil Morton created this project as a playful and critical video response in conversation with a local General Motors dealership from whom he had purchased a van. Produced at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (where Morton founded the Video Area), this work includes “Phil Morton and Friends” such as Jane Veeder, Dan Sandin, Tom DeFanti and Jamie Fenton who collaboratively developed the early Video and Media Art scene in Chicago. – jonCates
