1 Vox, Vol. 1
Damon Holborn, electronics
1 Vox, Vol 1 is a set of etudes that employ tight constraints to encourage focused exploration of the capabilities of a small but growing modular synthesizer. Each piece uses only one voice (that is, one sound generator) plus the small set of modulation and utility modules in the rack. In order to further center attention on the capabilities of the system, no external controllers or sequencers were used. Holzborn has long focused on radical constraints in his work, so while this performance interface is more limited than most of the instruments he has built, a tightly controlled possibility space is a natural place for him to be.
