|Abstract:||The research is concerned with some strategies and methodologies of electronic music and sound art, in particular, “hardware hacking”: the modification of pre-existing electronic/digital sound producing object for the purposes of “re-appropriation” or subversion of original intent. The output is a short film piece based on a modified electronic toy. The fixed value resistor which controls the pitch/speed of the voice has been replaced with a light sensitive resistor, thus making the pitch/speed of the voice variable, dependent on light levels. Thus it reflexively subverts and replaces the “Resistance is useless” of cyborg narratives with “Resistance is useful”. The strategy was to produce a conceptually-reflexive based piece that contributes to the on-going development of hacked-hardware based sound art.|
