1201 Alarm

1201 alarm is from the Apollo 11 moon landing and describes a computer error that occurred as the space ship began it’s landing procedure.

I used a combination of tape loops, a video game and a fan synthesiser based on light. The prepared tape loops were taken from recordings from old records and from the studio environment.

“The electronic digital computer” is Wernher von Braun describing the importance of the computer in making the moon landing possible. “I just couldn’t make it” was taken from a performance of Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller.
