DistMod is an audiovisual work for an original digital synthesizer and 18 knobs. The synthesizer was created in SuperCollider by manipulating the waveform shape of the frequency modulator. The synthesizer also has sample-and-hold feature so that the user can smoothly change from a glissando to arpeggio. The piece was written as a demonstration of my electronic music composition class project. The project is called One Sound, and the students are asked to define and create a “single” sound, gesture, or idea.
BiQMOd (2016) is a software synthesizer I made using SuperCollider. It features a biquad filter modulating frequencies of three oscillators. I believe that It makes raw and fun sounds that are uniquely digital.
You can try the synthesizer on SuperCollider. Download the patch from the following link:
