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

Alberto Tadiello joins us on 7E

Alberto is an Italian audio/electronic installation artist. He creates various autonomous sonic machines and installations that at some point undergo a climactic state. ”I’m interested in creating a physical experience without implicating a physical contact,” he says. “What I want is to make something epidermic that borders visual and auditory sensations, becoming nearly tactile.” Alberto also uses aspects of sound like echo and resonance in his work. He says he wants people to “bring along the residue of what they saw, heard, and felt” after they experience his art.

EPROMs (Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory) is an installation consisting of wiring, transformers and electric motors which drive music boxes. Like the limited use memory chips that inspired it’s name, the art piece eventually wears out and changes over time, starting out as a “fairy-like” soundscape and eventually disintegrating into a cacophony of worn out mechanics.

This week at Papernoise

Things are starting to get a bit crazy round here… but in a totally good way! So this is what we’ve been at:

  • Almost finished a t-shirt for a modular synth maker. Too early to unveil, but details about this are going to be released soon!
  • Did some consulting for a couple of new modules.
  • Almost finished a test app to showcase some of our software UI skills. The software is being made in collaboration with the Japanese software developer ju-x.com
  • Been daydreaming of making my own little hardware development project, but for now this is going to just that: daydreaming.
  • Got contacted by a whole bunch of people! The next months are going to be totally exiting!

Tanner Galvin aka NoysToise strikes again! 

this is a very very rough overview of just a few features of my latest synth. i may end up posting another video with it if i can get my hands on a decent camera. this clip really doesn’t do it any justice. more info and photos to follow at my blog, www.noystoise.com

I wonder if it’s just a coincidence or somebody got really inspired by my knobs…

This week at Papernoise HQ

  • This new Mutable Instruments module does not have paisleys on the panel… the decorations are more kind of round shapes. Nice to finally see a photo of the first proto panel!
  • Finished prototyping knobs and sliders for some software project
  • Looked at tons of knobs to find some suitable ones. it’s incredible that, despite the amounts of knobs on the market, it’s still pretty hard to find some decent ones.
  • I’m considering to post some stories to http://clientsfromhell.net/. Fortunately they’re not really MY clients.
