Here’s how the press release describes Demon Box:

“Using a proprietary system of inductors to translate EMF into sound, Eternal Research’s first commercial product, the Demon Box, can play anything from a cell phone to a hairdryer, process this signal, and make it musical. It promises to open up a vast new dimension of music making for new creators as well as experienced electronic and experimental musicians.”

Freaky, right?

Eternal Research Demon Box: 33 Inductors

The Demon Box uses a proprietary configuration of 33 inductors in a triangular field that translates the electromagnetic resonances of objects into three channels.

 “The three channels allow you to sculpt with panning, phasing and effects layering,” says one of the engineers involved in the device, Bryn Nieboer. “Stereo is limited, but we can expand on stereo with more than two channels, making a more synaesthetic triphonic feeling-sound. Each of the three channels can be modified with one dedicated aux in, with controls that allow the music maker to mix aux in and inductors independently for each channel.”

Eternal Research Demon Box: Ins and Outs

Eternal Research designed Demon Box to be compatible with existing audio setups. It features three mono outs plus – interestingly – a MIDI out. It will also sport a USB-C port for audio output and power. lastly, it will have a stereo output that can be used for headphones.

Chaos is the Music

“Our instruments are for people trying to experience new things,” engineer Alexandra Fierra says. “The Demon Box is an open palette, and I didn’t want my design decisions to limit people’s view. I wanted to keep the complexity and noise in plain view, so that they can experience these phenomena and realize that the noise can be a good thing. The chaos is the music, or the seed of all new music.”

You can hear the chaos in action at Eternal Research’s website. You can also sign up there for more information.

Demon Box is set to come out in fall 2024. Pricing to be announced.
