Signal to Noise returns to the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens, NYC, this Saturday, May 7, with many installations converting electricity into visual and aural stimulation. You’ll encounter hacked Gameboy 8-bit bands (Bubblyfish), augmented reality game shows (The World Series of ‘Tubing), and Daniel Iglesia’s Oscilloscope 3D – one of my favorite projects from the first World Maker Faire last year in NYC.

The World Series of ‘Tubing issues iPads and laser pointers for an evening-long augmented reality game show, featuring Peter Berkman (Anamanaguchi), Paddy Johnson (Art Fag City), Ryder Ripps (, and Ellie Rountree (Rocketboom). Bruce McClure overwhelms the senses with live multi-projector spectacles, and Matt Wellins and Sarah Halpern time warp Ektachrome. The So So Glos dazzle with updated indie pop punk and Shark? blasts unquestionably catchy lo-fi melodies, while Holly Danger braves the visuals. Bubblyfish wields her Gameboys and The Shortsleeves bring the synth, with No Carrier on the eyecandy. Marius Watz simulates magnetic forces, and Dan Iglesia oscillates in an extra dimension. Back by popular demand, DJ $mall ¢hange holds down the dance floor, and if we still can’t amuse you, AutomaticDJ knows your face and plays your favorite songs.
