plumbutter homemade synth is pretty


As the maker puts it:

«My name is Plumbutter. My face is a psycho-geographical map of the cities of Baltimore and Cleveland. I am a drum-machine, but let me tell you I am more than that, for I also am a “drama machine”. Thus there exists in me, a dialectic between drum and drama, like cops and gangsters, male versus female, or rural versus urban. You can see my wild spaces are represented by a deer-horn, and my downtown by a factory, and in between, a vast swath of suburban developments. It is a gradient of these three areas- urban, suburban, and rural- that informs my electronic synthesis.»

play them all at once!

New amazing 3d printers print circuits



Gone are the days when 3d printers could only chorn out boring old plastic.



Along come a new generation of much less lame printers that can print conductive materials. I am talkig about the exciting new Voxel8 and Voltera  (the latter isnt strictly speaking 3d but impressiv nonetheless.)

Still not the cheapest way to make things but it looks promising!

I would like to get my hands on one of these to see what kind of weird instruments could be made.
