sculpting with the rungler
Sculpting some chaotic sound waves with the Rungler (max msp patch version not the real one unfortunately…)
The Rungler is a chaotic little synth module created by Rob Hordijk, a great sound sculptor.
Here is Rob with the Rungler, and here some more information:
Rob Hordijk (b. 1958) was trained as a sculptor and jewelry maker in the 1970s. In the late 1970s and early 1980s he became interested to see if sound could be sculpted in a way that is similar to how materials like metals are worked. Electronics seemed a good way to get control over “sculpting sound,” and thus he invested a lot of time into becoming a master of electronics, with the purpose of being able to “sculpt sound.” He has since been building high-end sound-synthesis electronics for his own artistic purposes, such as installations, and on request for other artists. Hordijk has been teaching for over 20 years at the art academy level, giving lectures and workshops on sound design and sound synthesis.
