CRT Flux Phaser


    CRT Flux Phaser


    The CRT Flux Phaser is a hardware hacking and custom software project that enables electromagnetic exploration of CRT monitors in highly controllable ways, using Max as its brain. CRTs are modified with 4 electromagnets that receive amplified audio waveforms digitally synthesized to be 25% out of phase with one another. These audio waveforms are oriented around harmonics of 60Hz to generate particularly captivating manipulations. The software takes advantage of Max's precise control over audio waveforms. The software allows audio signals to be synchronized or disconnected across all 4 magnets, with waveforms that are identical or 25% out of phase with one another. The 25% phase offset enables the most potent visual manipulation.
    Audio signals are made up of up to 3 waveforms additively synthesized together. Each waveform can be a simple frequency, frequency-modulated, or amplitude-modulated, allowing for endless ways to generate distinct visuals.
