The Singing Machine
This is a short film that documents the operation of The Singing Machine.
People become part of the machine and sing.
The people in the video are singing what they hear in the headphones.
In the bottom right corner is an dual trace oscilloscope.
The top trace is the sound the people are hearing through the headphones. This sound comes from an audio frequency generator controlled by the operator (out of shot). You cannot hear this sound, only the sound made by the voices.
The bottom trace is the sound picked up by the microphone.
Below is a close up of the oscilloscope with different audio.
The Singing Machine is played on a monitor with headphones at the 3rd Floor Studios and Gallery in Manchester. (Flyer below)
The audio in this version is much higher quality than on Vimeo.
