A hybrid feedback loop between a computer running supercollider code and a Buchla 200 modular system sending audio and control signals to each other.

‘Bastard Noise’ is the artist’s side-project while he was working on The Buchla Project. Herein, EMS Buchla modular system is made part of a hybrid also comprising a computer running code. Then, Buchla and the computer exchange several channels of audio and control signals, manipulating them, and feeding them back to one another in several manners – thus giving rise to very complex timbres, textures, and interaction schemata.
The material has resulted in a digital album self-released by the artist through Internet Archive and Bandcamp. Audio from ‘Bastard Noise’ has been also performed live in a number of occasions.
