this synthesizer explores my understanding of glisson synthesis, an experimental technique of particle synthesis, as written in "microsound" by curtis roads. this will allow you to be able to explore the magnetization patterns of glisson clouds.

thanks to Peter Whiting for an excellent multi-envelope macro that i hacked apart which helped in the design of this synthesizer. this has literally been "collecting dust" on my system for some time now; decided to finally share it.

Ive scoured the UL and web looking for abstract synthesis is this is by far the most interesting.. leaky faucet?!?! amazing recreation.. created a sound of lasers bouncing of a bubble-like force field, theoretically the exact sound it would make haha Best work in the UL

Jungle birds and apes and insects, Sci-fi or retro elektronics. 10. I already used it. Also, its easy and light to use. I´d really like to see this get further, not by adding any effects after but inserting something in there. Hmm....

Indeed, great to see these kinds of things explored and implemented by those with the skill to do so (the Curtis Roads is a great read and inspiration). Thanks for sharing your work :)
