Live Visuals B2B: Romar Johnson (#façadeMontage:) x Philip Baljeu (Secret Sign)

Phil Baljeu is a video artist based in Toronto, working with the medium of obsolete composite video. He uses multiple layers of feedback within his system of discarded technologies to orchestrate forms with sound. Coming from a background in experimental electronic music Phil Baljeu uses his familiarity with synthesizers to contort video signals into psychedelic washes of structures and hues, relating elements of the musical composition and sound design to the images on the screen
