Building electronic instruments has been a part of my performance/installation practice for years, but recently I’ve started designing instruments to share with others. A lot of my previous instruments are available for free to Reaktor users in the User Library. While I’ve really loved sharing my instruments with others, its been frustrating to only be able to share them with people who own Reaktor, so I’ve started this new project – Faded Instruments.
The Faded Instruments design ethos is not to make perfect instruments, but instruments that can offer new ways of thinking about sound or approaches to making music. We’ll probably never make a synth emulator or a traditional mastering plugin. Faded Instruments are not ‘normal’ – their faults and imperfections are the eccentricities that make them unique and fun.
