This performance of Barbra Streisand’s 1973 hit single, “The Way We Were”, pairs a play on the word “memories” with a unique combination of real-time image and sound processing tools to evoke nostalgia for outmoded technologies. The image is processed by rescanning a replica of Nam June Paik's historic “Wobbulator”, built by Jason Bernagozzi. Panzarino’s voice is processed by “The Nipulator 2.0”, a custom-built, wireless electronic bra created by the artist that uses hardware potentiometers (or knobs), a hacked DJ Hero microcontroller, and a Max/MSP software patch. The left "nipple" of the bra manipulates the frequency of Panzarino’s voice in real-time, while the right "nipple" adds reverb.
