The Buchla Project has been realised while working a guest composer at the ElektronMusikStudio (the Swedish National Centre for Electronic Music and Sound Art) in Stockholm, where I attempted to interrogate the studio4’s Buchla Μodular synthesizer in all sorts of possible and impossible ways.  The project resulted in a digital database of numerous 1-6 channel audio pieces of various durations – all documents of a material interrogation of the machine.
