PROK Modular Preset Pack
The PROK Modular drums are DIY kits that contain powerful real-time drum synthesis algorithms implemented on Teensy microcontroller. A virtual space of presets, designed using a desktop software editor, can then be morphed in realtime under Voltage control in a Eurorack modular system. PROK designed an amazingly powerful system in an efficient package. I was commissioned to create a full set of presets for each one of the percussion modules, which was a lot of fun. They are available for free at thonk.co.uk

This feature length music film is an adaptation of an immersive sonic theatre piece created by the composer Cristian Vogel. The story is loosely based on a Scandinavian supernatural folk ballad of the same title. In the staged version, the actors and audience were immersed in the music as it played through a 24 channel Funktion-One sound system set up in a theatre in Aarhus, Denmark.
8th December, ZKM Kubus, Karlsruhe.
