Krellotron Musical Instrument

CREATURE FROM THE ID

THE SECRET OF THE “ELECTRONIC TONALITIES”

Creature From the ID is a music software inspired by the pioneering work of Louis and Bebe Barron, designed to emulate their self-generating electronic circuits, using only the techniques available in the 1950s.

A LOVE LETTER TO SCI-FI

Creature from the ID is an act of love that honors the Barron’s legacy, a new tool for teachers and students of electronic music who want to explore one of the most fascinating chapters in the history of electronic music. The circuits of this instrument seem to have a life of their own. The sound is warm and analog and the modulations create unpredictable and fascinating alien sounds.

VISIONS OF THE FUTURE

I leave it to you to judge whether I have succeeded in capturing the spirit of those sounds, those years, and that vision of an unlimited and magnificent future that the Barrons so eloquently conveyed through their music. And just to be clear on this, no AI or samples were used in the making of this software.

Full Blotter by Giorgio Sancristoforo


demo tutorial video upload by Giorgio Sancristoforo

"Full Blotter is a ticket to infinity!
It’s a smart little software that can turn any audio file (or song!) into an immense psychedelic, mesmerizing ambient drone.

Discover it at giorgiosancristoforo.net

(Windows version will be released in about 20 days)"



SINSTANT SPACE TRAVEL!
Full Blotter is a ticket to infinity!
It’s a smart little software that can turn any audio file (or song!) into an immense psychedelic, mesmerizing ambient drone.
Simply drag and drop a file into the waveform window and prepare to reach the limits of the galaxy, in no time.

DRONE HEAVEN
Granular synthesis often works using many small grains, Full Blotter instead use a few (ten) very large grains which have sizes of several seconds.
The algorithm disintegrates transients and time and transform any audio file into a luscious stream of hypnotic frequencies.

REMIX YOURSELF OR…
Remixing your music into an ambient megadrone version has never been easier and fun and using the random functions you can let it go alone for hours.
You can use FullBlotter to meditate, sleep or well… take a bicycle travel…
Use it wisely!

Phonosomes Genomics Sonification Workstation (teaser)


video upload by

"Phonosomes is my personal software for DNA sonification experiments.
It reads file from my genome (or any other standard genome FASTA file) up to 20000 nucleotides or 6666 codons and uses them to control the Waldorf Iridium. The Ammino Acids sequences control notes' pitch, velocity, scale, transposition, probability as well a synthesis parameters.
This is the evolution of my genomics soundart started in 2018/19 at the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission.

I'm working at performances for 2024/25 and fundrising for scientific equipment I need to further evolve the process.

Giorgio Sancristoforo's No-Fi Virtual Cassette Tape Loop Studio for Mac Released - Windows Coming


Presentation and Tutorial video upload by Giorgio Sancristoforo

"No-Fi is a cassette tape loop studio sim made to revolutionize your creativity with warm lo-fi sound and striking simplicity!

No-Fi is not a plugin and no other software is needed, it’s standalone:
Plug your instruments, record and mix, just like the real hardware.
You have one mixer, five cassette/loop recorders, one handy reverb and one delay. That’s it!
No-Fi carefully simulates the peculiar nostalgic vintage sound of cassette loops with all the warmth of tape saturation, noises and playback irregularities that characterize the sound of true lo-fi loops.
Choose between Ferric, Chrome and Ferrochrome tapes, add background hiss, tape age and saturation, then control azimuth errors, wow, flutter, tape catch and speed to recreate an authentic lo-fi experience.

Available at giorgiosancristoforo.net
(Windows version out in December 2023)"

The input channels can be used with synthesizers, guitars, bass, microphones, electroacoustic instruments etc. and can load a VST/AU plugin such as a guitar amp. Alternatively you can load a virtual VST instrument and play it with your midi keyboard! The cassette tape loops can record up to 1 hour of sound each, or if you want you can import your own loops from your computer.

Tape your loops and hear the magic!
And it’s not just five tape recorders, it works as a loop station! Plug in a midi switch controller and use it as a digital looper, with an analog heart."

The Buchla Techno


video upload by Giorgio Sancristoforo

"All made with the original 1967 SFTMC Buchla 100 of Ernst Krenek
No other instruments or samples.

Recoded at Salon Krenek - Ernst Krenek Institut,
Krems an der Donau, Austria
Special thanks to Alethea Dawn Neubauer, Martina Pröll and Clemens Zoidl"

See the full series in three posts here.

Additional details on the series from Giorgio Sancristoforo:

"I’m very happy to share my works at the prestigious Ernst Krenek Institut where I had the chance to play for four days and nights an original 1967 SFTMC Buchla 100 once owned by the Austrian Composer Ernst Krenek and now exhibited at his museum in Krems an der Donau Austria.

Krenek has been one of the most prolific composers of the XX Century, he has written pieces for theatre ballet opera symphonies electroacoustic and electronic music.

In 1938 after the Anschluss Krenek moved to California United States and in the late sixties he met Morton Subotnick and Don Buchla at the San Francisco Tape Music Centre.

In 1967 the same year of Subotnick’s SIlver Apples of the Moon Krenek bought la large Buchla 100 modular synthesizer which he used for a number of electronic and electroacoustic works not yet released to the public (which I hope that will be soon collected in a special release of his edition).

So here I am with Krenek’s amazing Buchla 100, probably one of the rarest and most expensive synthesizers on earth. Working with this breathtaking instrument is pure pleasure."

Giorgio Sancristoforo's Compusynth for Windows Now Available



You can find it at giorgiosancristoforo.net. You cand find demo videos in previous posts here.

"AN ALTERNATE REALITY
Compusynth is a modular synthesizer that takes inspiration from the west coast paradigm and the mighty Altair8800, one of the first personal microcomputers available to the hobbyists in the mid 70s.

With its peculiar 128 bit sequencer, oscillators, filters, efxs and processors, Compusynth is a powerful sonic laboratory thanks to its generous resources and flexible routing with 1596 patch points!

DREAM SYNTH
Compusynth has everything I ever dreamt about west coast modulars: enough resources to create tons of sounds with the addition of a large memory sequencer and a fantastic tape echo.

Compusynth can make weird experimental sounds as well as traditional fat synth sequences that will serve any music genere with its warm and deep tone.

RECORD ON TAPE
A cute tape recorder with many tape simulations is at hand to record your sound and gigs

Compusynth is made for experimentation, free from cliché and formulas, it is a magnificent tool for live improvisation, drones, strange bongos and extremely flexible for sound design.

You can use any virtual audio driver to connect Compusynth with your DAW, just in case…"
