징 WM_A28 TCM_200DV BK26 BK26 is a further development and combination of the installation '징 noise #1' and the noise performance 'WM_EX10 WM_A28 TCM_200DV BK26'. For this noise performance, sound and video is generated through short circuits the artist produces with his wet fingers on opened devices and additionally the short circuits produced by modified solenoids hitting the jings (korean gong), a Korean traditional instrument. This produces the typical sound of this instrument and is closing the circuit for short time. The skin’s resistance and the conductance of the human body combined with the components of the circuits are modifying the sound.
The audio signal that is audible through the speakers is sent to a projector which is visualizing the signal in flickering and abstract shapes and lines in black and white. The used devices, such as 'Walkmans' and 'Bontempi' keyboards, are still useful in their original function.
