Exploring audio through intuitive sound processing, a personal explorative practice.

Software plus hardware routing processing. Using the audio card as a multichannel mixer,router,splitter.

The older I get the more I realise how central deep processing stays through my musical journey.
From the old times of footpedals to the actual combination of software and hardware processing, I’ve always been interested in using guitar as the source of an energy fluxus to excite and move the physical and virtual molecules located in resistors, processors and algorithms.
This has led me to devote much more time to experiment through these tools, which are usually not considered as musical instruments, than exercise my guitar skills and techniques, which have always been very poor and so will stay.
After more than 30 years in doing this I feel like that’s what it should have been.
I feel comfortable in such a fluctuating, unpredictable, deep and stimulant musical environment.
Sound exploration is able to activate many areas of my inner self.
This is what music means to me. Actually, is this really like this or when I’m listening to music I’m actually just looking for that magical, evocative potential that sounds are able to create in me ?
