This is the recent. What's happening? it's getting there. There was some problem solving which took a lot of development and we had to change our initial ideas for the synth. We documented some of this by having writing conversations. We developed some really nice sounds which are here:
Writing conversation where we decided that there was too much interference while using the echo chip. We also discovered that when using the radio chip that the human body can act as an aerial.
The drawings have been developed further here with more complex patterns exploring both currents (electrical) and currents (tidal). Drawings by Lisa McKendrick.
Here is an experiement to see how the touch pads might work. The metal stripboard on the left is our touchpad for now.
We researched some of the ways that body contact can affect pitch.
Here are some fellow builders of electronics who we've been greatly inspired by:
Martin Howse, who designed the Micro-blackdeath and the Dark Interpreter which we have used extensively in Isn'tses performances. Great sounding and highly original instruments with esoteric and alchemical concepts behind them.
