"A sound and light installation. When we're not there, this attic is playing a new genre of industrial symphony.....

What you're seeing is a dark attic space in which the frames of wood and the pipes are being lit by a very precise ray of light, giving us the illusion that the light comes from inside the object.

Each lit object has its own individual sound.

This was made in the attic of The Pavilion in Bexhyl on Sea, England. This is my first experiment, I'm preparing an exhibition for the Brighton Fringe based on this idea. I'm collaborating with Mike Blow who will put light sensors on each lit object to react with sound. The sonic result is amazing as it directly reacts to the ligh projected.

Come and see the exhbition called "Sonic Art" at The Blank Gallery in Brighton, between the 2nd and 16th May.

Arturia Origin Review on

"What I loved instantly about the concept of this synthesizer is that it is completely modular. It is a virtual analog synthesizer. So emulating analog synthesizers. Arturia put in all the components that they developed in their software the last years and you can combine them as you please. So you can take a Minimoog oscilator and run it through a CS80 filter, but you can add and hookup modules however you want. So you can create very complex sounds with it. And does it sound like a real CS80, Minimoog, Prophet5, ARP2600 or Jupiter 8? No of course not! Nothing beats the real thing but they come pretty close. And it is not emulating these machines that I want to do with it. I want to create unique new sounds. The hands on controls make it very easy to work with." Read the full review on
