THIS IS HOW WE DEFORM: MUTABLE INSTRUMENTS "Warps"


Mutable Instruments has impressed me with its design ethic, packaging,  clearly written manuals, and most of all their quirky, but user friendly modules. The WARPS module is no exception with crossfading, cross-folding, and vocoding just a few of its tricks. An internal oscillator  and several CV inputs add to the modulation potential.  As the Buzzcocks say, "noise annoys", but it's just so much fun getting to that point!

SOMEONE SOMEWHERE IN BROOKLYN


Back with the CONTROL boys and girls on Lorimer Street, and having a truly nice time, as always!

PROCESS: GESTURE (a kind of balance between drawing & painting)


My latest paintings present a kind of balance of the painterly and the drawn, ultimately forming a chaotic network meaningless "marks".  The smudges, sandings, erasures, and ghosts of gestures could possibly be admissions of both a wordless desire and disdain. How could one possibly make art without dichotomies?

THIS IS HOW WE DEFORM: MAKE NOISE "MYSTERON"

Another crypto-noise machine from the folks at MakeNoise. The MYSTERON is described as a “voltage controlled digital waveguide algorithm”,  whatever that could be? All I know is that it’s a worthy addition to my arsenal of noise toys, and that it certainly is the sound of electricity! Available from Jonas and Daren at Brooklyn’s finest synth shop, CONTROL.
