The mess below is a work in progress and- if I can get it all done without starting a fire- will eventually be a step-sequenced filter pedal. It's got a great sound, and owes a lot to the schematics of the man from Beavis Electronics (who seems to have forgotten to pay the subscription for his domain name this month, hence the lack of a link)
The white tube is a vactrol, which is a nifty little component consisting of a Light Dependent Resistor staring right at a red LED. I love the concept of it: it's so simple.
The Intermedia department of Budapest's College of Fine Art (MKE) asked me to submit a self-portrait for their vitrine exhibition Excellent Intermedia Workers, or Kiváló Intermédia Munkások, to give it its sexier title. This week was the exhibition's opening night.
I worked at the MKE in 2007 with some great tutors and friendly Hungarian colleagues, as well as good crowd of international students. It was great to be asked to contribute, and to have my work in such close proximity to the Russian Embassy.
