A collaboration between video artist Brandon Bauer and electronic musician Franz Bucholtz, Signaldrift: A Day Under the City is the result of digital versus analog fighting for space within a dense structure of sights and sounds. Spliced video tape and noise samples accompany a pulsing rythm that is synonymous of life in a midwestern american city on the edge of a new era. As you bathe your ears and eyes in the ambient world of Signaldrift, you'll probably wish you had the means to procure a video-projecter and a big pair of speakers.
