Scratch Synthesizer

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Taking a cue from Cornelius Cardew’s Scratch Orchestra, which encouraged the idea that people who are untrained in music can be consummate performers, this table-top modular synthesizer looks to place the creation of music into the hands of the festival goer.

At its heart, this synthesizer uses eight modified hand-held radios as a sound source. Each radio has multiple places for the performer/audience member to connect and disconnect cables, allowing for each radio to influence both its own circuitry and that of its neighbor.  The performer can freely connect any of the sixty-four points found in the radio stage to one of four rhythm making circuits.
