sound of one hand clapping: with the Boss HC-2, EH Memory Man Deluxe, and Fostex 6301b. the HC-2 = “a single-function hand clap synthesizer" for "a wide range of hand-clapping effects" :-)

analog duet

starting to work up a sound palette for a new project, a cassette release with a label in sweden. setting up various duets of instruments, e.g., the little boy blue synth from flower electronics + the mfb-522 drum machine. both of these form part of my quest in recent years to use very small + portable instruments with all-analog sound generation. i like how analog sounds have a particular depth + texture, especially when played through a big sound system. i’m also appreciating the design + philosophy behind jessica rylan’s synths, which she talks about in her pink noises interview: instruments that are fun to hold + spend time with, and that strive for the possibility of doing chaotic sounds in a repeatable way. like in this beat i can set up nutty squiggles in the breaks, but the way they turn out is always a surprise.
