Hi, I'm Scott. I've been interested in diy sound electronic sound generation since way back at my days in art school in Seattle back in the 90's. I strayed from the art path and ended up in IT in Portland, but now am finally able to spend the time and money to get into something I've loved after all these years. To be clear, I don't consider myself a musician or even an artist. My goal is merely to make things (and sounds) that delight me.

I love Arduino and Raspeberry Pi and have also messed around with simple (read "cheap") music production software. For me, however, nothing beats the satisfaction of physically putting things together and learning how they work. I don't have any background in electronics and view the harnessing of the electron as a kind of magic. With that in mind, I went back to things like the Atari Punk Console and the Baby 10 Sequencer as a launching point. While building my Baby 8 Sequencer from scratch, I started outfitting my electronics workshop, how to solder, and read schematics. I also started to study how these technologies from the mid last century work and where they came from, such a fascinating and rich history. The story of the Vocoder alone feels like something Neal Stephenson could write an epic novel about! By comparison the sounds that my creations make are ridiculous but miraculous to me at the same time. They are my doorway into a fantasy world populated by scientists and wizards.

I also started diving into the history of electronic music. I've been a fan of electronic music from the first time I heard "Gonna Make You Sweat" by C+C Music Factory at my mom's aerobics class in the 80's! I became a fan of anything synthy with a driving beat. Now, going back to artists like Stockhaussen, Glass, and Carlos, I see how the the development of sound synthesis and it's use by such cutting edge artists changed the world of music forever. While I still love pop music with it's beeps, boops, and beats, I now listen to the soundtrack to a Clockwork Orange or Brian Eno's Music for Airports with a new appreciation.

I've attached pictures of my most recently completed project, the Baby 8 I mentioned earlier. Comments and constructive criticism is always welcome. I look forward to chatting with you all and listening to your amazing creations! If you're ever in Portland, maybe I'll see you at S1 sometime!

welcome party!

very nice looking box you got there.
It does seem to be missing some diodes but maybe they are hiding in heatshrink
