<kat no.8>

Companion Boxes and Companion Blocks are circuit bent DIY electronic musical instruments. They are the product of practicing hardware remixing. In this exercise; circuits designed to process signals have been transformed into signal generators.

The sounds they make depend on the circuit that is used. The devices made and used on this recording are based on multi-effects processors by the Zoom company.

Companion Boxes are enclosed in VHS cassette tape boxes. Each uses feedback as their core method of sound generation. Some have extra points of interest made available to increase the tonal variety available to the performer.

Companion Blocks are enclosed in hollowed out wood (salvaged 2×6 timber offcuts) with a plastic control surface. Blocks also use feedback to create sound. All blocks have points of interest added to the surface for creating more tones. Blocks also contain an amplifier and speaker and can be powered by 9v battery, making them portable.

Each of the studies presented here demonstrate the range of tones and textures that can be created by the instruments. All sounds are created by the Boxes & Blocks. Effects were avoided*. The only studio manipulation of the direct-to-disk audio recordings was to adjust volumes and movement in the stereo field.

The aim is to encourage others to create their own hardware remixes, circuit bent instruments and feedback systems. A guide has been produced to assist other makers.

Toneburst wishes to publish sound creations made by other makers.

*Traces of copycat echo appear on track A1 – Industrial Chemistry Newton
