Nielsen Slit

Nielsen Slit is a generative analog sound piece consisting of a portable TV that generates a new soundtrack to the over-the-air programming it receives based on the luminance values of the video image as detected by sensors attached directly to the screen. Sadly, the piece ceased to function as intended on June 12, 2009 when NTSC broadcasts were suspended in the U.S.
