TV Static

Title

TV Static

Subject

The sound of static ("snow") emitting from television 4 in the Sibley Music Library listening room at the Eastman School of Music.

Description

With the increasing rarity and rate at which a VCR and a VHS is needed for study, one must have the right tools for the job. In such a case, multiple VCR and VHS media can be found and experienced in the Sibley Music Library at the Eastman School of Music. TV number 4 in Sibley's listening room provides a short burst of static noise accompanied with a brief display of what is commonly referred to as "snow" (random pixel pattern). In the recording excerpt, the sounds heard are those of the power button being depressed, the sound of static (which sounds kind of like a short and rapid snare drum roll), and silence. I repeatedly turn the television on and off in order to capture the resultant static that serves as the transition sound between silences.
