In this video, I prepared various electronics and sound sources including tape loops, micro-cassettes, minidisc, and midi keyboards. I manipulated some of the sound sources using KOMA field kit fx unit with CV from the Korg SQ-1.

Introduction to the piece: 'Imprint of a False Echo' takes inspiration and ideas from the book 'The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind'. Julian Jaynes' book talks about bicameralism, a hypothesis in psychology that argues that the human mind once operated in a state in which cognitive functions were divided between one part of the brain which appears to be "speaking", and the second part which "listens" and "obeys". Playing around with the ideas of interweaving forces, speaking/listening, thought/action, mind/body, breaking away from the mould of the commanding voices of gods, leaders, the principle idea of an unchanging force or the axis mundi towards the descent of instantaneous unity of self-awareness echoing the vestige of bicameralism. These two forces are represented in the ensemble and electronics, one as speaking, the other as obeying.
