The video (individual piece HERE) was made from recordings made by participants in the Squeal & Scrape workshop at Ten Acres of Sound festival.
Live feed of the online screening event: HERE.
The Squeal & Scrape workshop is being hosted virtually at the Ten Acres of Sound festival, Stirchley.
A laser-cut case for Drone v& Drama v2 and a 84HP eurorack skiff are available for download.
My collection of project files and guides to build more DIY electronic musical instruments that I designed over my research/practice are now available on GITHUB and HACKADAY.

Each track has a relationship of playback speed with the others,
the divisions are in thirds.
1.666 / 1.333 / 1 / .666 / .333
The files to build your own Drone & Drama v2 instrument are available online.
Files include: schematics, bill of materials, gerbers, build guide.
There are four modules: sine/triangle generator / noise siren / filter / mixer.
It was inspired by simple synth DIY + the idea “bent by design”.
Sound examples can be heard through Toneburst.
