    Assorted modified electric and electronic toys, sensors, control voltage generating modular system, custom electronics,
    light sources and loudspeakers.
    220 x 105 x 110 cm. (window display)

    Toyzone is an installation derived from On Air, a radio performance by No Noise Reduction (JPF and Rafael Toral) using manipulated sounds made by modified electronic toys. Installed as an alternative shop window display, Toyzone links the lo-fi noises now associated with electronic play with the sophisticated processing of generative feedback systems – most toys are triggered by actions of other toys, or by interaction with the public.
