The Octopus is a non-digital interface for musical expression re-examining two historically significant technologies, film and analog modular synthesis, both currently experiencing a revival of popularity. The installation consists of an 8mm projector and an arrangement of light sensors on the projection screen. The light sensors supply control voltages to an analog modular synthesizer. Original handmade 8mm films produced specifically as visual scores for the Octopus create a live synaesthetic audio-visual composition.
