?* Sony wm-F3050

video upload by Gijs Gieskes


?* is almost the same as the Zachtekind & ?Kind.
A walkman with extension circuit that is powered by the walkman itself, controlling the Walkmans playback speed with buttons linked to the potmeters next to them. It is a simple device that makes it possible to playback tape in very slow speed and switch between selected speeds, intuitive and playful.
it is stereo. Has a build in radio (AM/FM, no extra controls over this radio are added).

- input cv in for playback speed control -5v to +10v (example: 0v = low pitch, 5v is high pitch, so it is in reverse from normal).
- amount of CV can be adjusted with a potmeter.
- output audio out from walkman.

- 5x pot for playback speed per push button momentary switch.
- 1x ON/OFF toggle switch for 1st playback speed pot switch override.

- 2x AA battery, The range of the speed control pots is different when powered from a battery.

New Gieskes Klok Eurorack Module

video upload by Gijs Gieskes

via Gieskes

"This is a eurorack clock module with features related to a clock. On the left you have the audio output that is the sound that the clock makes, it is amplified via a piezo, the piezo is gated via a vactrol witha build in envelope. The clock can be advanced interlay via the build in LFO, but it can also be advanced via a external gate signal. There is a volume pot for the volume of the clock.

The center input goes via the volume potmeter above it to the vactrol, here you can put in external signals, these will be mixed in with the sound of the clock and gated with the vactrol.

Then there are two outputs for the LFO, they are one square wave and one sort of triangle wave. The potmeter above them sets the speed, when turned all the way to the left the LFO will stop oscillating and hold its state.

+12v (Power consumption should be not much, maybe 100ma)
-12v (maybe 20ma?)
Width is 12HP"

Gieskes Coronaparty



I was watching the news on TV and they were talking about Coronaparty, showing kids hiding in the forest between the trees, some had tie wraps around there wrists, it spoke to my imagination.

Triangle/Sine waves the natural sounds on the ground and the digitaly created signals in the tree tops. (Controlles on the tree trunks)."

MU S.L.A: GG #1

Published on Apr 5, 2013

"Some of my modules on expo in the for the exhibition: Sounds Like Art.

Video of all works in the expo:"

Sounds Like Art - Andy Cavatorta, Gijs Gieskes, Tom Verbruggen from stichting MU on Vimeo.
March 22 - May 5

Guest curator: Michel van Dartel

In the vanguard of music, sound artists are always exploring new ways of creating music. Often the search will not only lead them to the new sounds they set out to find, but also to some unique instruments. Instruments which, besides being functional, can also be seen as works of visual art in their own right. Especially when they combine the aesthetics of craftsmanship with the possibilities offered by the latest in technology.

Usually these works of art perform their humble services exclusively on the stage, where they can hardly be observed from up close. But in the exhibition SOUNDS LIKE ART the spotlight is not on the artists, but on the instruments they create. It has resulted in an exhibition in which we can hear and, most importantly, also see the unique interplay between form, material qualities, and technology of these new instruments.

The participating artists include the American Andy Cavatorta, who created a series of harps especially for Björk, which are played using gravity, Dutch hardware hacker Gijs Gieskes who compiles the most extraordinary new synthesisers from existing electronics, and Eindhoven based musician/artist Tom Verbruggen, better known as TokTek, who creates some ingenious sound-producing sculptures.

On Saturday May 4 Sounds Like Art ends with a special night of live performances by Author & Punisher, Gijs Gieskes, Pieterjan Pieters en Tom Verbruggen/TokTek.
