INFUNDIBULUM#2.1

The second in the series of multi-arp workstations. A gloriously grimey playground of possibilities with an open door policy for unexpected artefacts and happenstance.  An instrument with the  audio patina of a life well lived.

3 x 60 sound sources = 216,000 combinations

INFUNDIBULUM#2.1 - takes the polyrhythmic cascades of sound, strange interlocking tremolos and beautiful warped loopings of her big sister into bigger bolder territories - great for organic and gorgeous pseudo orchestras, wibbly wobbly dust pads, muscular Michael Nyman swoon and epic thrusting cinematica.

 

INFUNDIBULUM#2.1 is packed with 4GB of bowed, sung, spun, plucked, stretched, teased and blown things that have been squashed through tape, vinyl, springs and valves for the character and audio patina of a life well lived.

60 sound sources per channel = 216,000 glorious combinations

New in #2.1 - 6 filter sequencers, updated sound sources, new convolution reverbs,  user sample import, new FX and a snazzy new interface.

"Infundibulum is unbelievably groovy… what an amazing untapped palette of timbres and rhythms, a real polyrhythmic wonderland.” - Chris Carter - Throbbing Gristle, Carter Tutti and Chris & Cosey

 

THE INFUNDIBULUM family is not intended to authentically replicate any of the sounds included, some have been deeply multi sampled and others are deliberately stretched across a wider key span than is sensible. The samples all have very obvious loop points. The whole point of Infundibulum is to embrace and celebrate the artefacts that occur when sampling goes too far. Hold a chord, any chord, and you will hear the different notes start to cycle back on themselves in disjointed but glorious ways that you will never hear from a gazillion gigabyte hypersampled piano, crumhorn or orchestral calabash.
Then add in the multi-arp and filter sequencers, 3 sounds repeating through different length cycles at different speeds, and you are halfway to an out-of-body experience.

The SAMPLED INSTRUMENTS...
Dust piano, Lowry organ, Winfield organ, many many electric guitars, household paint brush, violin played by a proper violinist, trumpet played by an improper trumpeter, concert whirly tubes, Jecklin disc, 4 track cassette recorder, taut wires, Sherman Filterbank, spring reverbs, Nord Modular, Space Echo, Roland SH101, Hammond Organ, a singing human, ribbon mics and broken electrics, guitar pedals set to 11, harmonica, recorders (school not tape this time), Moog theremin, many modular modules, Clouds, Strymon Big Sky and Deco, Roger Linn Adrenalinn 3, home-made guitars, electric milk whisk and home-made pickups...

'This is superb, I've never seen anything like it. I really, really love it !' - Mikey Rowe keyboard wiz to the stars (Sheryl Crowe, Noel Gallagher, Ed Sheeran, Dave Gilmour etc )

What the heck is an INFUNDIBULUM anyway ?

Funny you should ask :- technically it's just a funnel, but in his excellent time leaping novel Sirens of Titan, Kurt Vonnegut invented the Chrono-synclastic Infundibulum, which is essentially a time funnel. Seemed an apt name for this instrument.
