Build Your Own Psychogeographic Noise Synth!

In this hands on workshop, you will learn how to build your own experimental noise synthesizer - the Fort Processor! All the necessary components in kit format will be provided, as well as guidance to build your device from scratch. 

The Fort Processor is an experimental noise synthesiser and audio effect circuit designed by harsh fun noise duo ISN’TSES (Tim Drage & Lisa McKendrick) for Fort Process sound art festival 2018. The synth is controlled by light, touch pads, 3 knobs, and a trimmer. Audio is created and manipulated by four sections which have been combined using a circuit-bent approach.

About Isn'tses: Isn'tses is a collaboration between visual/electronic artist and musician Lisa McKendrick (Listen Lisse) and animator and electronic artist Tim Drage (Cementimental).  The duo perform wearing costumes and masks in conjunction with live video projections and illuminated props. They deliver a spontaneous and improvised performance using theatrical style interaction with their self-built synths, noise boxes, circuit bent toys and vocals. Their music conjures themes such as paganism, freedom of speech, freedom of sound, intergalactic heroism and a playful interpretation of popular culture.
