2019 NOISE Future Reflections

cut my teeth on circuit bending long time ago
recently dusted off and rewired an ancient machine that circuit bent in the 90s...
retired it around 2002 when they became all the pop subculture rage
got in some box recently above the workbench & found 4 S&S machine plus 1 S&M
so.... took it apart my original bent S&S and completely rewired most everything.... considering it was fuct
(had extremely fragile total crap braided phone wire making the bends & hot glue)
yet hey that what had way back then for my initial bending projects.............................. mid 90s
also replaced broken switches
anyways been recording with while doing complete rebuild
this one is the 1978 first series Speak & Spell with bonus word cartridge
it gets some good noise loops
contemplating hacking one of the other units into eurorack module
back in the day had this one taking CV input
yet no fucking clue anymore where it is on the TI chip
and had obviously removed that at some time in the ancient past
if anyone has any experience bending these machines & have info on cv input then please post it in this thread
such as the TI chip Pinout/DataSheet TMC0280, later called the TI TMS5100
this machine is all manually poked bends/glitches from way back when...
Image
made series of recording while working on this project yesterday & today
around 60 minutes worth
Happy New Years!
some new rough entertainment for the noise inclined listeners:

http://www.n01ze.com/Muzak/Trax/Speak&S ... anter3.mp3
liking some of the noise sources getting out of that old machine
well it's officially re-animated
making up raw source for hacking into samples...
these new Trax are all raw S&S w/FX
Merlin is next... it had batteries in it for at least 10+ years.... Corrosion... CV input/output intact
(used it as VCO/Sequencer)
breaking out some old machines for the new year
knocking off some dust & battery acid

http://www.n01ze.com/Muzak/Trax/VSR_Acu ... _intro.mp3
SMPE stripped Dokorder 4track Reel to Reel

missing 4+demos worth of material from that era...
all master reels gone....
dat backups now lost or destroyed
have 3 surviving cassette tape flyoff mixes
of about 90 minutes total run time
using old EMU & ENSONIQ samplers
Image
so it's time now for reflections into the future...

is that photo yours or google images? i used to love playing BOLO so much at a friend's house who's parents worked in university computing, network of like 5 latest macs in the living room :)

Need to dig my Plus out, want to get Laurie Spiegel's Music Mouse running on there plus other stuff i have loaded up on a nice drive emulator thing on there...

2019 let's have more circuitbending, more Classic Macs, less white supremacy in noise hahah

eye can run that here now with my old pre-osuX macs
will try it outputting midi to sampler sometime....
BTW that image is currently in process of being used on extremely limited VSR re-release
someone is talking about funding "hydrodipping" tape shells with that image
also contemplating collecting on mountains of "NoiseScene"favors for vinyl pressing
plus what you mistakenly call "White Supremacy" is "Survival"
we all have our own life experiences and perspectives
so if you want being shitcore anti-fa noise... that is on you
Tim, as stated before, we would probably get along fab if it wasn't for the "polyticks"
thanks for bring up mac music mouse
will make up some sample banks for using with it on the Ensoniq
maybe....
not high priority now
getting my Electric Wizard CircuitBent CV Merlin working again is much higher on "The List"

rather start snarky shit over your "polyticks"?
then start a thread with your "polyticks"
rather than go shitcore all over my thread

Reflections? Hm, drink more water, it'll help your throat after laying down vocals..a laptop and a cheap condenser mic (plug and play) beats a lot of fancy gear for pure noise..and, uh, don't take too many takes, wabi-sabi and all that good stuff

i had one of those when i was a kid, wacky mind control device, i mastered that shit, wasted hours with it, but now long lost to the sands of time

i listened to a few seconds of your tracks on my phone, didnt really get to hear much, its damn loud around here and no real "stereo" set up, i use the tv speakers sometimes but those are just a glorified sony boombox, the real equipment is in storage while i remodel the house

i have a couple ideas for projects, hopefully i have time to get on it

imo the sound is similar to one produced by automated bitcrushers such as wmd geiger counter or roland bitrazer
also had similar results with my bitcrusher patches in nord micro modular
