Big thank you to the whole team at Make Noise

My journey with modern (21st century) modular is very tied into the wonderful work of
Make Noise Co. I am a fan, discovering new depths and heights every day. Somehow I have connected spiritually with this Asheville vibe.

I am able to discover new sonic worlds and channel magical energies that inspire, challenge and delight me.

Make Noise modules form the core of my electronic music experience

Make Noise was founded in 2008 by Tony Rolando, a self-taught electronic musical instrument designer who got started by obsessively reading amateur radio books at the public library, building electronics for artists, such as the light controlled mixer for Simon Lee's "Bus Obscura," working for Moog Music, and playing in bands for many years. After 3 years of isolation on a mountain top he founded Make Noise.
What started as a re-visioning of jettisoned music technology has grown into a crew of folks working together in Asheville, NC, to design and build some pretty strange, but thoughtful modular synthesizers.

"We see our instruments as a collaboration with musicians who create once in a lifetime performances that push boundaries and play the notes between the notes to discover the unfound sounds. We want our instruments to be an experience, one that will require us to change our trajectories and thereby impact the way we understand and imagine sound. Also, we think what we do is fun and we hope you like it, too."
