On an expedition this generative system was recorded. It’s the fourth video in a series of modular synthesizer experiences. Click on the link below to see the video.
In 1970 she became known as a sound designer, composing electronic music for film and commercials. Before that she studied composition at the University of California (Berkeley). Through her boyfriend then, she met + DON BUCHLA +, the synthesizer pioneer and inventor, by which she was strongly influenced. She still works passionately with the Buchla Modular Synthesizer today and gives live concerts worldwide. Also, Suzanne recently received the + 2023 SEAMUS AWARD + congratulations!
Her sound can be described as hypnotic and intense, in the field of cinematic ambient and electronic orchestral music. As a French artist, she uses exclusively modular synthesizers for her sound explorations and compositions. With this instrument of infinite possibilities, she immerses us in an ocean of sounds that put us in an altered state of consciousness.
As an incredibly talented synthesizer enthusiast, living in Gothenburg Sweden, she primarily creates atmospheric textures and deep soundscapes. But she also likes to integrate layered beats and complex rhythmic patterns. When you get involved with her music, it’s like going on an immersive journey, you take off to float and drift.
These solar cells produce a voltage of 0-5 volts. These are very suitable to be used as control voltage (CV) in the Modular Synthesizer. For example, a changing light source can influence a filter (VCF), the pitch of an oscillator (VCO) or the volume of an amplifier (VCA). When an autonomous patch is influenced by external sensors, it is also called an interactive generative system.
Another possibility is to feed the solar cell directly into an audio amplifier. Then e.g. the frequencies of LED’s can be made audible. Click the link below to watch an example.
