Ginny Benson – Modular Synthesizer, Sampler, Analog Video Equipment, VHS
VX Bliss explores techniques of blending and juxtaposing sound and video. Audio and control voltage signals fuse modular synthesis with analog video technology, creating an immersive abstract environment. Images from found VHS tapes, layered and weaved with video feedback, are distorted into shapes and patterns; samplers and synthesizers weave glitches, drones, and other electronic ephemera into lush compositions that stimulate and disrupt the visual information.
VX Bliss is the solo project of intermedia artist Ginny Benson. Her live performances use analog synthesis to create densely layered electronic music that drifts between melodic soundscape and atonal noise, integrated with video collages made from VHS tapes, circuit bent mixers, and feedback.
