The Most BORING Spectraphon Patch

video upload by MAKEN0ISE

"Unlike the Morphagene and Mimeophon, which record/play/repeat literal reproductions of sounds, the Spectraphon synthetically recreates the spectral makeup of sounds. Thus instead of sounds being 'replayed' they are 'reborn' as new spectra in an environment where they are cut loose from their origins.

Given all this, let’s speculate that the most boring thing you could do with a Spectraphon is re-create the same sound that is modulating it. Of course, on the most basic level, any recording device can do that. My phone can do that. Doing it with the Spectraphon is a bit of a catch 22. If it succeeds, then we’ve failed at doing anything interesting. If it does something interesting, then we’ve failed at … succeeding. Let's try anyway!!"
