Moog Music and sound-art designer Yuri Suzuki would like your help in putting together a worldwide interactive electronic musical instrument installation. Called “The Global Synthesizer Project” it intends to allow users to synthesize environmental sounds from around the world. The key is an archive of atmospheric field recordings from diverse geographies which can be used as source materials to create new sonic environments. The only problem is that the archive doesn’t yet exist.
This is where you come in. The Global Synthesizer Project is asking for contributions from around the globe to help populate these custom made synth modules. We’re talking atmospheric sounds, background and environment sounds from where you live, your region, your space. So grab your large bag of field recording equipment, or your phone, and get out there recording your world.
Yuri talks about it being a “world symphony” where “users are able to make their own music and embark on their own exploration into global audio experiences – you can make your own world song”. What any of that will look like in real life I have no idea.
Recordings can be submitted to GlobalModular@moogmuisc.com in either .aiff or.wav format and do make sure you include the location and sound source information.
The Global Syntheiszer Project intends to debut at Moogfest 2016 in North Carolina, which is in like 3 weeks time from the 19th to 22nd May so don’t dilly dally.
