I was into visuals years before I did anything serious with music or 
sound art. A lot of my early playthings were sculpted plasticine 
monsters and hand-made spaceships and robots. I also drew a lot and 
made collages. Collage and assemblage concepts and procedures are an 
obvious influence on my live music and studio composition.

I'm dreaming in that direction too. The projectors I've been lusting 
after are a little pricier, being in the $1,500-$1,800 range. This is 
because I've been looking at XGA resolution and brighter lamps.

I've done a lot of performances with visuals, primarily with a 
combination of multiple slide projectors on multiple screens together 
with movement performance and manipulation of simple props. At some 
point I'll put some images up on the Web.
