Dutch reader Rene Splinter has been experimenting with a Moog Etherwave Theremin for use in a new composition.
Instead of recording the traditional sound of the theremin, he decided to use it as a starting point for further sonic exploration:
The idea came into my mind to put the Theremin’s audio output through a ring modulator, as I thought it could result into something interesting. For this, I have used the ring modulator module of the Nord MicroModular.
I’ll be using this idea in a forthcoming production that is going to work as a background soundscape at an art exhibition in downtown Rotterdam.
The sounds you here were generated with the Yamaha FS1R, the Waldorf Microwave, the Roland Jupiter-6 and the Moog Etherwave Theremin.
