Orgamat transforms picture-information of live telecasting from an in-built television into the warm and heavy sounds of five organ pipes. Five light sensors continuously detect the change in light intensity on the screen, enabling the machine to function as a big sound generator. Sitting on a comfortable couch one can surf up or down the channels via two built-in switches triggering a remote control, creating new dimensions of sounds. Thus countless and repetitive daily TV-shows in their very often brainwash-variety, generate a new acoustic adventure.
