“Rainforest Reverb” is the next ecology-inspired project from the Austin-based sound collective, Rolling Ryot. As part of this year’s Fusebox Festival, the installation is aiming to expand the ways in which we perceive sound by using one of the world’s richest ecosystems as a sonic blueprint...

REBECCA MARINO, April 11, 2016

Kyle Evans is a new media artist and musician living and working out of Austin, Texas. When he isn’t teaching audio production and electronics at the Art Institute of Austin, his personal projects include de/RastraCracked Ray Tube, and Limited Hangout...

de/Rastra, derastra
The Austin Chronicle


Evans is an artist with no limits on what technology he can embrace. Cathode ray tubes are as integrated into "000000" as computer screens from the Nineties. It's a feat in and of itself to see this somewhat dated technology working, let alone acting as such an acute point of conceptual communication...

Paul Prudence, Print issue #45, Summer 2013

Kyle E Evans’ oscillographic synthesizer, the de/Rastra, consists of a circuit-bent CRT TV linked to a computer running a MAX/MSP patch to enable discreet cross-wiring of audio and video signals. The chassis of the TV has been modified to incorporate a gestural interface, using an accelerometer and force-sensing resistors, so that it can be played as an instrument...

Interview with Dadageek, January 2017


As we begin 2017, we wondered about what is on the horizon for digital media art.

We realized this is a great opportunity to ask artists we know to tell us what they are most excited about, what they see as challenges ahead, and how they (and the rest of us) can prepare for what’s next.

In this first pair of interviews, we hear from Kyle E. Evans and Jacob Villanueva. Kyle is a new media artist, sound designer, electronic instrument creator, educator, and performer. Jacob is a professional creative focusing on digital media. Both live in Austin, Texas...

Cracked Ray Tube, June 2012

TV static has been driving viewers crazy for decades. But artists, ever-able to find beauty in the banal (as well as the irritating and ugly), have turned what we once perceived as dysfunction into art with a capital “A.” Glitch art, or digital error-turned-aesthetic, has been around for almost as long as glitches have been ruining television programs and Internet connections...

Gregory Mone, Print issue April 2010

Kyle Evans, a 24-year-old artist, bought his first didgeridoo in a small shop in Cairns, Australia, three years ago. The owner helped him pick out one of his handmade Aboriginal instruments, and after Evans taught himself to play, he decided to build an enhanced version: an electronically modified, Bluetooth-enhanced PVC pipe that cranks out didgeridoo-like sound with added digital flourishes...

Berlin, de/Rastra
Create Digital Music

Peter Kirn, May 2012

While recalling a now-obsolete technology and the work of artists like Nam June Paik, de/Rastra is something of a (delightful) lie. In the form of a television, it appears to be a self-contained, vintage instrument. In reality, it’s a simulation, a CRT with “altered anatomy” that uses a computer to drive faux vintage cathode ray visualizations and to produce digital sound. But the synthesis of visuals with the body of a television is wonderful, a play on past and present technology that produces an impossible electronic now...

S.C.A.B. Artist Collective; Review of GO by Kyle Evans

Lucy Kirman, January 2013

GO, an installation and two performances by Kyle Evans, is the second show presented in Homeland Security’s living room space. During Dec. 22’s opening, I walked past minglers on the porch into a twilit room. Immediately the sounds of beep, boop and sxzzzzz met my ears, and my eyes adjusted to flashing screens...
