'no input' is a form of sound involving mixer feedback. Outputs taken from an audio mixer are fed back into the inputs of the same mixer, creating a contained semi-controllable feedback system. Strictly speaking, there is an 'input', it is the mixer itself. Each different model and make of mixer exhibits unique sound characteristics and depending on the complexity of the mixer and patch, virtually 'unlearnable' instruments can arise. The performance consists of a close-up camera that follows the performers hand gestures and projects the output into the performance space. This visual focus allows an insight into the precision and dexterity involved in controlling the system linking machinic and limbic traits.
