Jamming with the Landscape HC-TT

video upload by Musical Miscellany (Poorness Studios)

"I posted a few videos about the HC-TT from Landscape and now I decided to do a jam with it. Instead of using glitchy synths and the like, I decided to try it with "traditional" instruments. I'm pretty happy with the way this came out."

Sculpting Electricity with Landscape FM Noon

video upload by Sarah Belle Reid

"A deep dive into the Noon passive analog drum synth, designed by Landscape FM and Mystic Circuits. This video provides an in-depth walkthrough of Noon and how it works, along with a number of demos and patch examples of Noon in combination with hardware sequencers / touch controllers, Eurorack modular synths, acoustic instruments, and effects pedals. We’ll also go over what 'passive' means and how a passive synth like Noon works."

Superbooth 22: Landscape - Noon

video upload by sonicstate

"Eric Pitra from Landscape introduced us to a very interesting instrument: Noon, a passive, un-powered analogue drum and synthesizer.

Noon utilizes incoming CV and Gate voltages to power each of its 8 analogue circuits. Linked together they can grow, inform and process one another in complex rhythmic ways with lots of lovely organic instability.

Noon availability: August 22 Price: 680 USD"

video upload by Luca Longobardi

"A Failure for Civilization: a maditation for retrograde words

I have quite confused ideas about what could be the right behavior in a situation like the one we are living today: one can stop petrified by horror to reason, to try to understand; we can take refuge in unconsciousness and pretend that that same horror is far away, that it does not touch us closely. What is the right thing to do in order not to wobble that glimmer of lightness that was glimpsed on the horizon after these two hard years?
Today I am lost like this."

New Landscape NOON 8 Channel Powerless Instrument

via Landscape (demos on site) Overview✺

WHO❀ Noon

WHAT❈ An 8 channel powerless instrument which is activated and modulated using voltage from external sequencers.

HOW✷ Analog circuits are powered momentarily by incoming gate and control voltage signals causing them to oscillate and breath naturally. When these circuits are linked together they can grow, inform and process one another in complex rhythmic ways.

WHY❃ This technique increases the unstable properties of analog circuits, causing increased organic textures and movement. The simple controls are provided to ensure immediacy and access to rapidly alter sounds and movement without patching.

WHERE✾ The simplicity of the interface was designed with live performance in mind. The number of internal and external variables (control voltage types, linked channel behavior plus external audio input) create lots of room for studio exploration.

WHEN✻ We plan to have pre-orders open by end of January 2022


NOON is a passive analog drum/synthesizer. Each of the eight channels uses a unique analog circuit with its own characteristics. No power supply is needed. Each circuit is triggered and powered individually from incoming gates or control voltages provided by voltage sequencers or modular systems. By using this unique method, we can increase instability and magnify organic aspects of traditional analog electronic instruments. The sound of analog, at its core, is the sound of sculpted electricity. By removing the stabilizing elements of a constant power source, we can listen to the sound of electronic circuits loading and unloading, powering up and powering down, and we can increase the natural chaotic movement of electricity. The loading of circuits creates natural ways to access swing and groove or ways to deconstruct a programmed rhythm sequence to make surprisingly new ideas.

Each channel is represented by a tuning fork. Incoming voltage can be thought of as a way to “strike” each fork with momentary voltage. Between every channel there are Link buttons which allow voltage sharing between channels. Linking them provides a wide mix of results depending on incoming voltage, active or inactive channels, slider settings, gate lengths and multichannel linking. The results can be described as cross modulation, growth (creating a larger and more complex circuit), or processing (filtering, distortion). Due to the cycles of voltage and this inherent instability, a definition of what is actually occurring between channels can be hard to pin down. The eight Mod buttons, which are located at the bottom of each tuning fork, change the behavior and sound of each circuit. The eight latching CV buttons along the top allow the “☾” Even and “❍” Odd CV modulation inputs to route to even and odd channels. When incoming CV is unmuted, a channel’s behavior can change drastically and this behavior can change further when channels are linked. These CV inputs are a way to add microtonal pitch changes and/or large textural movement to voices. The Even and Odd CV inputs are summed to their respective channels to provide a rhythmic modulation reference between multiple channels. ⏚

Landscape Soundwich: What Is It?

video upload by poorness studios

"This is a cool little gadget from Landscape called The Soundwich. I was always curious how it worked, so I bought one just to figure it out. I try to explain what it is and what it does. Hopefully this video is helpful to somebody.

Intro @ 0:00
Overview & Explanation @ 0:57
Using the Internal Sounds @ 2:56
Using as a Microphone @ 4:07
Signal Processing @ 5:02
Sound Clips @ 6:00
Conclusion @ 7:20"

Pics & aditional details via Signal Sounds Reverb

"Soundwich is a device based on the sound of tact switches, hardware and PCB material. In part it’s a compact and sturdy form factor for interaction with piezo experimentation. The piezo disks are directly mounted to the undersides of the top and bottom PCBs creating a direct connection to the sounds of the tact switches. The two 3.5mm jacks can be used as either ins or outs. One is a momentary out and one is always on. The momentary output allows you to hear only the depressed click sound of the tact switches while the always on output allows you to hear both the depress and release of the tact switches amplified by the two piezos. When you shake the Soundwich you will hear the sound of six washers sliding along machine screws and colliding against the two piezo pickups. Using momentary out while shaking will only allow that sound to escape when disks are compressed. Compressing along the edges will provide different filtering amounts depending on where you press [the 7 stacked lines indicate greatest amount of filtering/attenuation with less and less filtering as your travel counterclockwise till there is nearly zero]. Routing audio or CV through provides a fast and tactile handheld momentary on device.

1 a simple passive piezo, tact switch and hardware based sound device which can expel audio or accept it

2 a piezo pickup with a constant output

3 a piezo pickup with a momentary output when disks are depressed in center point

4 a piezo pickup with momentary out through 8 different filter amounts when depressing disks along edges (volume is also attenuated)

5 an exciter for resonators and effects

6 a shaker using internal washers to strike the top and bottom piezos

7 a shaker with momentary out through 8 different RC filter amounts

8 a lo-fi vocal mic when pressed directly against the lips (and/or momentary on when using momentary jack)

9 a very quiet lo-fi speaker

10 a tactile momentary on switch when routing audio through it (in one direction)

11 a momentary on w/ lowpass filtering and volume attenuation when routing audio through (the reverse direction)

12 a momentary on plus attenuation of modular signal when routing through the RC filter

13 a shaker and clicky trigger source for some modular synthesizer modules without needing an extra boost to modular levels

14 When boosted to modular levels, clicks and/or shakes can be used to advance a sequencer for example

15 When placed on a hard surface each side can create different rhythm sounds when tapped

16 Other definitions"
