Exhibition Label
9/23/69: Experiment with David Atwood was created while Nam June Paik was artist-in-residence at WGBH, a public-television station in Boston. The title refers to the date Paik orchestrated this spontaneous performance in which he composed a myriad of televisual and musical scores into a stunning electronic display. The production was broadcast live as Paik collaborated with engineers, musicians, video technicians, and fellow artists to mix television signals with sound, fusing electronic abstractions of moving color and imagery that had never before been seen or experienced in the medium of television.
