A crackle canvas is a painting that produces sound. It contains a circuit board, speaker, knobs, switches, wood and canvas. Each canvas makes sounds by itself but can be connected via cables (patched) with other crackle-canvasses. This way the paintings start to react on each other. Each patch creates a different sound and drawing of cables on the wall or in the space the paintings are presented. 

I present Crackle-Canvas #1 to the audience in a performance. In this performance I show the audience some of the many things Crackle-Canvas #1 can do. After this performance I invite the audience to play with Crackle-Canvas #1 themselves.
