Kabbalistic Synthesizer~ 2015
The Kabbalistic Synthesiser was an exercise in making the ultimate West Coast synth. Made in collaboration between Imperial College Blackett Lab for Physics and the Royal College of Art Design Interactions in 2015. The synth uses fluctuations in the Earth's Magnetic Field as the base carrier frequency and occult reference to a 22 stage FM system that is combined with a resonant low pass filter of live Jovian Decametric Noise and 11 tube cosmic ray detector acting as a true random event handler.
The synth has been exhibited/performed at Moogfest North Carolina 2016, ACT Festival Korea 2016 done a tour of stone circles in Penwith West Cornwall and was nominated for the ARS Electronica STARTS prize 2016.
Further info about the project and its development can be found in a write up here, an interview here, and sounds from testing here.
