Here are two wonderful modular videos to get your week started. The first Buchla video above is from Italy and is just so very THX1138. Giorgio Sancristoforo does a great job creating lovely FM radio and filtering white noise. The next video shows Brazilian Arthur Joly’s incredible wall of metal. May these blips set the tone for a terrific week.
“A shortwave radio scans through North-African, Chinese, Russian, French, English and German channels, the output is then forwarded to the Buchla. Inside the synthesizer a white noise is processed with three narrow bandwidth band pass filters connected in serial configuration so to obtain quasi-sinusoids sounds. Both the sources are further processed with a balanced modulator and a frequency shifter and stochastically controlled by the Source of Uncertainty 266e module.” – giorgiosancristoforo.net

I’m back from Milan with about 300 photos to sort through. Since I spent an extra day there and it’s Tuesday my other job is demanding immediate attention. Therefore a more complete Milan post will follow tomorrow. I did have a good time, ate good food and make new friends. You know… the important stuff. The photo above taken with Richter was shot backstage at the venue called “Carlito’s Way”. It’s a room full of metal band’s graffiti.

Who doesn’t like bass? How about a lot of bass? A ton of bass? Check out some of these photos from an Italian room built with a giant subwoofer into it’s basement.
“Royal Device has on its own developped and built in Italy the biggest subwoofer of the world for an AUDIO/VIDEO room that can be also considered as the greatest AUDIO ROOM for private music listening of the world. The audio reproduction is focused on the speakers output capability more than electric power output of the amplifiers with no need of KWatts power supply lines, releasing more than 110 dB/1W/1 meter sensitivity starting from below 10 Hz focused on the listening position.” – curiousphotos.blogspot.com

LepLoop is very small. It’s only a little large than the palm of your hand! It’s also a fully analog synthesizer and sequencer from Italy. I really like this concept so my fingers are crossed Tony will get this into at least a small production run.
“LepLoop It’s a small synth protype I’m developping with my friend Peppo. The idea was to have a compact live analog instrument. The circuit it’s an original design. The synth can produce 3/4 sound at the same time kick, noise hh, snare, bass, melody” – tonylight
