Doing Math

sound performances for analog function generators

After exploring modular synthesizers without keyboards and sequencers in my work-in-progress Coastlines, I started to create a new instrument based on the MakeNoise MATH function generator, partially controlled by random signals from the WoggleBug. It also uses a Doepfer A-114 dual ring modulator and an analog mixer patched as a non-input mixer with internal feedback loops. These ingredients result in a fascinating experimental toolbox of analog signal processing, covering a wide range of non-standard sound synthesis methods.
