Gordon Monahan - Sauerkraut Synthesizer [excerpt]

Full review to follow. The title here is purely descriptive, for the music was generated through Monahan's custom synth setup, with various fruits, vegetable and a jar of sauerkraut acting as voltage gates to control various sound elements. Although it is, at one level, a bit of a gimmick, the music was, ahem, rather tasty. Plus there was a cool visual element, as well, with Monahan providing both a live close-up video feed of his hands-on manipulations, but also a live readout showing which items were contributing to the soundscape.
