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

Ok we can’t hear that song anymore, it almost hurts, but the technical side of this is pretty interesting.

May I present to you, one Raspberry Pi Model B, one $5 USB MIDI interface, one £20(ish) Behringer USB audio interface, 7 Virtual Analog synthesizers, 9 notes of polyphony, a bunch (4 or 5?) stereo delays, a global reverb straight out of the upcoming Jordantron, and ladies and gentlemen - Popcorn!

Recorded straight out of the phono outputs of the Behringer into my Mac, no processing, exactly the bytes emitted by the Pi. Here we go …

CONTACT is a tangible audio interface to manipulate and visualize sounds generated from interaction with a simple wooden surface.

Any physical contact with the table generates acoustic vibrations which are manipulated and visualized LIVE as they occur using several communicating pieces of software.

All code will be opensource and available on github.

Graphical notation and composition by Candas Sisman – more info here

I must say that I find these experiments very fascinating and this one example very beautiful in its graphical representation of timbres, pitches and gestures. It kind of lacks a more defined relationship between all those parameters and the visual elements though. It often feels like the choices have been made according more to a graphical taste than to their musical function. Still… this video is totally worth watching/listening to!

This week at Papernoise

  • Finished a long but extremely interesting research on Detroit techno, vintage Roland drum machines and seminal figures like Juan Atkins. You never stop to learn, really…
  • Made some new Yellow Magic t-shirts for Society6. Btw. there is a promotion running right now:  $10 OFF $75 — $15 OFF $100 — $30 OFF $150
  • Hackme Electronics just announced that the Vectr is done! There’s even a manual up on their website: http://hackmeopen.com/Media/VectrManual.pdf
  • Painted a whole lot of other backgrounds. I thought preparing textures for 3D mapping was easier… but it isn’t. It’s a real mess!
  • Worked on some more logos!
  • Designed a panel that I will use in a new modular case. I had ordered a 3U case, but it turns out the case has 4U space, so I need to fill the space up.
  • SEN | XOR is coming in the final project development stage. Only 2 weeks left…
