I make films, photographs and electronic music. I build electronic musical instruments

Building a modular analog synthesizer

When you reach a certain age you will do strange things.
You will finally buy that Harley, let your hair grow or try to find a girlfriend who’s 20 years younger than yourself 😉
Fortunately I didn’t do any of those things, instead I decided it was finally time to do something that I have been wanting to do for 15 years or so: built a synthesizer.

I started out designing some stuff myself but that didn’t seem like a good idea after a while so I decided on building a modular analog synthesizer based on a proven design. I ordered PCBs from Synthesis Technologies and Oakley Modular to built a first basic modular.

On these pages that journey will be documented.
