A frequent criticism of modular synths, an by extension the people that use them, is that they’re used to make ‘fart noises’.
Some might take offense at that viewpoint, or suggest that it’s just a lazy way to put down music that the listener doesn’t like. Others, though, have realized that there’s actually a paucity of videos demonstrating the sound design of fart noises.
It’s a genre that’s ripe for exploration.
In this video, synthesist Tom Avatars rips a definitive statement. Avatars unleashes the full power of the Moog Mother-32 in a lavish display of shartsesis.
