an illustrated talk on the evolution and history if 'synesthetic' and audiovisual art and performance through the lens of its tools with a strong focus on practices of experimentation, re-purposing, DIY but also early practices of sharing and open source. Navigating throughout the centuries towards our times several artists and inventors have dedicated their minds developing their own tools of expression for synesthetic and multimodal performances: the search of crossed senses experiences has been since a long time one of the most innovating arts exploiting medias and merging their natures. Throughout these explorations not only media was exploited and created but also technologies, artifacts and objects were explored in innovation and unexpected ways to achieve the objectives of immersive audio visual experiences. From colanders and eggbeaters, to film itself and ballistic war machines, improbable technologies were used with poetic purposes.
