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

Matt from Hackme Electronics just posted these photos on Muff Wiggler of the new, black panels for the upcoming Vectr eurorack controller/sequecer module.
Can’t wait to get one!

Steve Reich would love this video! The musical interpretation of human speech is a very interesting research field I find, since it may be a good tool to better understand the complex relations (and profound differences) between language, text and music.

In the past it has been attempted many times to the describe meaning of music using the same tools used to describe the meaning of spoken or written words. Though these attempts have always failed, leaving just a big void. It feels like this is an area where musical studies still have some work to do.

The Studio of Experimental Polish Radio, early 1960s, from the exhibition Sounding The Body Electric: Experiments in Art and Music in Eastern Europe 1957–1984, at Calvert 22, London.
Really enjoyed this exhibition - on a personal level, it brings together three of my interests: I’m from Poland, Fluxus is my favourite arts practice, I write about sound art. 
If you missed it, check out the official page for info. 
Or read Andrew Weiner’s review of the exhibition for Texte zur Kunst, "Sounds of Second Worlds," here.

This week at Papernoise

This week the Papernoise HQ has been emptpy and unused most of the time. Not much to report unfortunately. Well, except for the fact that I have finally finished that Casio SK-1 bend.

As soon as I find a bit of time I’ll make a nice video of it!

A very simple, yet effective way to get direct and natural interaction with sound through a sensor, is using accelerometers. We’ve been experimenting with attaching them to the head so you can change pitch and timbre of certain sounds by moving it up or down. The interesting aspect is, that the sound already changes when you move your head. By carefully crafting the patch, you can get a sort of expansion of the auditory experience by increasing the naturally occurring phenomena.

Of course we are not planning to stick a Wiimote to anybody’s head!
