Dave Jones Flood Coil 2

Post by kjellb » Wed Feb 01, 2012 2:45 pm

Preparing for a tour of Japan with Keith Rowe, Dave Jones made us a new custom Flood Coil. The Flood Coil emulates the debris emitted from a CRT. We use it with FM radios and pick up coils. Notice the opening to be able to get very close to the coil. It is a very very sensitive device.

I mentioned the original "Flood Coil" here last fall In the Dave Jones Design Flood thread (the device was named because it was built during my exile from home caused by the flooding in town last fall).

The original was built on a sheet of cardboard while visiting with Kjell and Keith Rowe when they were performing at a nearby university. Needless to say the cardboard version isn't exactly touring friendly.

You feed video in. It gets amplified and drives the coil, which radiates the video magnetically so it can be picked up by a telephone pickup coil or a radio as an audio noise signal.

There's some info about the flood, and some pictures here. Water was up about 5 feet into the Hand of Man (below ETC). Hank's house was heavily damaged:
