Most traditional synthesisers put a strong emphasis on reproducibility and the stability of pitch. Therefore they need big and complex mechanisms usually realised inside a black box.
For Sonic Luz the priority is a maximum of flexibility and the possibility for haptic interaction on all the parts of the tone production.
By moving the lamps, the toneweels, the light sensors on the table, or changing the discs,
the composition of the sounds is manipulated, quickly and intuitively. The machine has no interior that could possibly be hidden, everything is laid open for the audience and generates a performative aspect of great beauty.
