Dichroic Plastic Mic, Santa Barbara, CA © 1984
Updated about 1 month ago

Recorded on 3/4" U-Matic, the mic is an amplified, thin piece of plastic that changes colors as it moves in the wind. Damaged original video restored in 2021 now in HD. A small piezo transducer was attached to this dichroic plastic.
