The Dirty-Carter Experimental Sound Generating Instrument

Chris Carter (Throbbing Gristle) tests out the Dirty Carter Experimental Sound Generating Instrument:

The Dirty Carter Experimental Sound Generating Instrument uses a dual 4-stage shift register. Each register is controlled independently. Two oscillators are used per register: one as a clock, the other as input data that is cascaded through the four stages. The outputs from the stages are mixed together. A fast clock rate produces a crude form of wavetable synthesis, whilst a slow clock rate creates audible pulses and clicks. The clock speed and the data input’s frequency are controlled by touch electrodes/pads. By tilting the instrument, sound from both the 4-stage shift registers can be mixed together. Glitchy noise, deep drones and percussive peeps!

The Dirty-Carter E.S.G.I. will be available for sale later this year.
