The NARLI AGM 2022 in the NMD @ NCH will also feature an all-day record fair with representation from all partner labels.
Halo is a noir patchwork of generative soundmasses. Sonic elements rearrange themselves and unfold according to their own internal logic. Revealed are themes of alienation and anti-idealism.
Included is a DIY PCB of the EMF Pingler, a detector of invisible signals and ghosts. A noise device that picks up on its environment and makes sound when it is passed through electromagnetic fields (EMFs). The PCB itself features beautiful designs that make it a worthwhile trinket for those who may not want to solder.
As with all TB instrument and DIY PCB releases, if the EMF Pingler is used in your music-making please share the results with us. ‘Toneburst wishes to publish sound creations made by other makers.’ www.grahamfranz.com
The UM66 chip was designed to play popular monophonic melodies: The chip used in this circuit plays several melodies. The UM66 is used two times. They are not synchronised. This DIY EMI has potentiometers to control voltage starve & volume as well as a switch to change the ‘bent’ character of the sound. It is possible to use headers sockets for the ICs to allow them to be swapped, enabling user control over the output.
This version was designed with a Winter celebration in mind, hence the name FESTIVUS as celebrated in regions of Europe and beyond. Nollaig na mBan! (little/women’s christmas Ireland) Trettondedag (13th day Sweden) día de los Reyes Magos (3 kings day Spain), also; Epiphany.
