The Mojave Desert Modular Experiment: Dustin & Takako

Published on Jul 8, 2019 Perfect Circuit

"In the Mojave Desert Modular Experiment, we worked with local artists to create modular systems suited to their own styles and workflows...despite the fact that none of them had ever used modular synths before. Each artist/group had two weeks to get to know their system and prepare a performance.

The second participants in the experiment were Dustin & Takako (Dustin Wong & Takako Minekawa). These two have years of experience improvising together and often combine musical instruments like guitar and keyboards with more experimental sounds from effects and looper pedals used with found objects and other odd sound generators. We built a eurorack system with each of them, both featuring playable touch interfaces, while Dustin's system focused on FM synthesis, and Takako's on physical modeling.

Come by our showroom to try out these systems for yourself, and keep an eye out for more results from the experiment each Monday this month! Read more about Dustin & Takako’s system and get links to his music here:"
