about

Seed to this new Sigma-record came from my Electronic Music Box (EMB) project that was DIY-project for compact modular synthesizer. EMB has strong connection to Buchla’s Music Easel synthesizer and “Source of Uncertainty” (SOU) concept. Source of uncertainty is something that affects everything. SOU can occur at any point in music creation process, and it always varies from day to day. Because of this SOU is very strong tool in music and particularly in composition process where this random touch can lead to some interesting places. EMB has one implementation of SOU and can generate quantized random voltages. This means that you can choose from linear or geometric access to the number of random voltages. These voltages can be converted to musical pitches so that you can generate random sequences where randomnes is controlled by voltage. Examples of this technique can be heard on “Touch of Uncertainty”, “Strange Attractor” and “Decomposition”. “Electronic Druid” and “Orbital Maneuvers” where composed for “Ambient Laboratory” concert in 2011. “Sleep of the Shadow” and “Greener Grass” are harvest from “Greener Grass” art and documentary project by Mari Keski-Korsu.
