The Alan Sondheim Mail Archive


The SK-1 has volatile memory that vanishes when the synthesizer is powered
down. I recorded a short sequence of 'white' notes, placed them in memory,
played them back with an overlaid layer of 'black' notes; the result is a
structure which remains dissonant almost to the end, coupled tracings
turning in. This is an image of the coherent body, always on the verge of
resolution, never completing the totality that would (uselessly) continue
its life forever.
