Schmitt Trigger – HEME
In electronics a Schmitt trigger is a comparator circuit with hysteresis implemented by applying positive feedback to the non inverting input of a comparator or differential amplifier. In HEME the shmitt trigger is an ideal component to explore live construction, in quadrophonic sound. All circuits built live from raw components.

No input mixer – HEME
A mixer with no inputs. The outputs of an old and unloved mixing desk are plugged into its inputs, this creates feedback, and many opportunities for creative interaction.

Copernicus – Alex O’Donovan and John Ferguson
Challenging the canon of live musical expression – with a circuit bent synthesizer receiving voltage control, 6 oscillator detuned noise generator with voltage sag, and an amplifier responding to human-touch circuit bending.

Quiet raised eyebrow – HEME
Circuit, singing bowl, voice, projector, circular sequencer, no-input mixer, microphones.
