Hey world. I’m moving to the Netherlands. I’m going to study electronic musical instrument design and history as a masters student in the Instruments&Interfaces program which is a collaboration between The Institute of Sonology and STEIM.
I’m excited to meet new people, participate in more festivals (now that I don’t need to fly over from the US) and I have a ton of projects I’m eager to work on.
Drop me a line if you’re in Den Haag or Amsterdam and want to show me around or talk about synths

I’m working on a new compact modular synth kit project based largely (but not entirely) on the SSM2164 quad VCA chip. I just ordered the PCBs today. You can see it here
Just drafted a design for a touch controller to go with that I’m pretty excited about.
Inspired by the BugBrand CTL1 module which was in turn inspired by this and this article in Synapse magazine (from 1977).
More to come!The new NovaDrone is on it’s way too!

I’ve applied for a grant from Rhizome in NYC to help fund the development and documentation of an open source analog synthesizer called the Benjola. This is an open source kit adaptation of the amazing Benjolin Synthesizer invented by Rob Hordijk. 8 grants are awarded by a panel of judges. 2 are awarded by votes from Rhizome members.
If you are a Rhizome member and want to help bring this project to life, please vote for me.
I am applying for funding to develop the kit then produce and distribute 30 units to builders and musicians around the world who will build, use and develop the project further. The entire project will be documented on my website and be freely available for others to use as a starting point for their own Benjola projects.

I’ve been doing a lot of development lately. I’m waiting on the new NovaDrone PCBs which will be here monday. There will be lots of info on that up soon.
The DroneLab sequencer unfortunately needs a redesign and has been delayed by a few months. I’m converting it from an analog&logic design to a micro controller based system. Of course I should have just done this from the beginning. Oh well.
Also working on a series of stacking analog modular synth PCBs based on the SSM2164 IC. I will have those ready and for sale in my store in a month or so. More info on those soon.
