I heard a papernoise in the distance

I'm a graphic designer and illustrator with a pathologic love for synths and electronic music. Here I talk about musical hacking, DIY, circuit bending, synths and handmade, experimental electronic music.
---
I run a small design studio called papernoise, you can find our website at: www.papernoise.net. I also play in an experimental noise band called kvsu

Some new photos of my Casio SK-1 circuit bending project.

The video is coming soon! Really… I promise!

yellow panels, hmm… starting to have some ideas :)

This one’s coming for real!

BI1brainterface, brain activity to CV/MIDI interface.The product release will see two different version: the eurorack module and the stand-alone desktop BI1brainterface. The interface will transmit to your equipment your EEG reading (8-band power spectrum) plus a couple of high level informations like Attention and Meditation.Functionalities are shared 100% between the two and we designed the Desktop Edition to be used by the non-eurorack customers!Those will include big format modulars, MIDI based equipment, and more…Both products will have an integrated user interface with a graphic OLED display that allows ther use to configure the machine.Smoothing of the signals, trigger threshold, additional algorithms, scaling, midi channel and cc for each output are completely configurable.We did not forget the tinkerers that, adding to the voltage outputs, will enjoy the availability of an RS232 interface that outputs the values of the EEG readings OR could drive the DACs by sending serial commands.

This week at Papernoise

  • Tweaked the Mutable Instrument Eurorack Testing Tool case, there’s a new version up on Github.
  • Tweaked the panel for an upcoming Mutant Drum module
  • Got interviewed by a local news website about my synth-building and circuit-bending passion.
  • Failed epicly at laser cutting some proto panels and case parts, thursday was kind of a bad day for that.
  • SEN | XOR: Got the accelerometer sensor and MIDI shield to work on the Arduino Uno! I hadn’t been coding for ages and it still sucks, but one has to do what one has to do.
  • Layouted some new manuals (well actually Elizabeth did most of the work)
  • Officially started a new project of my own. Too early to tell you anything about it though.
