What makes a good synth? // Herbs and Stones // Gianluca Herbertson

"Disregard the convention in the search for playfulness - probably good advice for anyone who's looking to innovate. In particular with instruments, where playfulness is key to inspiration, prioritizing the experience over the 'perfect sound' might lead to happy accidents.

Gentle Wham and his older sister (or brother, however you wanna see it) Liquid Foam, are both quite special in that sense. Their sound is gritty and surprizing and their visual style, typography and icons reflect a bold artistic vision that does not conform.

Gian, from Herbs and Stones, started tinkering with electronics at an early age. But it was only recently that he has taken the step to make his own instruments.

In this conversation, we go through the various prototypes that lead to Liquid Foam. We touch on an unreleased filter 👀, and end with his latest creation - Gentle Wham!"
