Sight And Sound Combine In This Engaging Synthesizer Sculpture

Marion Kozub

We’ll often have a delicate place for circuit sculpture projects nearly anything with components supported on awesome tidy rows of brass wires usually captures our imagination. But insert to that a very little little bit of light and a whole lot of audio, and you get one thing like this hybrid synthesizer sculpture that seriously commands focus.

[Eirik Brandal] calls his creation “corwin stage,” and describes it as “a generative twin voice analog synthesizer.” It is built with a huge-open up architecture that invitations exploration and serves to pull the eyes — and ears — into the piece. The most affordable degree of the sculpture has all the “boring” electronic things — an ESP32, the LED drivers, and the digital-to-analog converters. The next amount up has the much more visually fascinating analog circuits, constructed predominantly “dead-bug” design and style on a framework of brass wires. The user interface, generally a sequence of pots and switches, life on this degree, as does a SeeedStudio WIO terminal, which is applied to display a spectrum analyzer of the appears produced.

Moving up a little bit, there’s a seemingly incongruous vacuum tube overdrive alongside with a electricity amp and speaker in an acrylic enclosure. A vertical aspect of thick acrylic towers around all and properties the synth’s hold off line, and the light-weight pipes that snake as a result of the sculpture pulse in time with sequencer occasions. The video below exhibits the synth in motion — the music that it generates in no way really appears the exact same twice, and seems like almost nothing we’ve heard prior to, other than maybe briefly when we heard a little something like the track record songs from Logan’s Run.

Hats off to [Eirik] for a different wonderful-wanting and terrific-sounding create you may possibly don’t forget that his “cwymriad” caught our focus earlier this yr.
