INFUNDIBULUM#1 £50.00 (inc VAT)
Infundibulum#1 is a multi-arp workstation, a gloriously messy playground of poly rhythmical possibilities with an open door policy for unexpected artifacts and happenstance.
Like a room full of noise generators, plucked, struck or bowed things, exotic vintage synths and more. You control a space and time shifting chamber orchestra of the cloned avatars of Moebius, Roedelius and Plank.
'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 )
Infundibulum 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 keyspan than is sensible. The samples all have very obvious loop points. The whole point of Infundibulum is to embrace and celebrate the artifacts 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 amazing multi-arp, 3 sounds repeating through different length cycles at different speeds and you are half way to an out of body experience.
"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

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.
