Damon Holzborn - synthesizer

1 Vox is a series of etudes that employ tight constraints to encourage focused exploration of the capabilities of my small modular synthesizer. Each piece uses only one voice (that is, one sound generator) plus the small set of modulation and utility modules in my rack. In order to center my attention on the capabilities of the system, I used no external controllers or sequencers. I've long focused on radical constraints in my work, so while this performance interface is more limited than many of the instruments I've built, a tightly controlled possibility space is a natural place for me to explore.
