The "Electromagnetic Objects" are a collection of works by Woody Vasulka & Brian O'Reilly.
The source materials were generated by Woody using a Rutt-Etra Scan Processor in 1975, and in 2006 Brian O'Reilly collaborated with Woody to contribute the soundscape.

According to O'Reilly, “the works use sources excavated directly from the output of the Electromagnetic Objects, as well as further manipulations using Tom Demeyer's ImX software, developed with input from Steina. Extensive editing and layering and additional augmentations were done using Phil Mortons IP. The Sound was generated (mostly) by custom software developed by Chandrasekhar Ramakrishnan and myself called NETHER GENERATOR, which sets up a number of complex real time feedback networks filtere
and processed by various means.” Read more...
