RGB SHIFT is a performance piece which utilizes shifting frequencies to create sight and sound by utilizing custom hardware and software built using Max/MSP and Eric Singer's MidiTron to manipulate circuit-bent instruments in ways which would be impossible to duplicate through direct manipulation by human hands.
In this piece, a series of chain reactions is triggered by sending values to three circuit-bent children's toys at a variable rate. Each of the three toys is represented by a red, green, or blue value, and presented onscreen as a bar of color. As the values sent to each of the toys change, the resulting color will change as well. The size and location of the color bars is determined by the resolution and frequency of the control signal.
