Mangrove holds the essence of an instrument in the form of an oscillator. Sounds are defined not only by pitch but by spectra. As the earth shakes under foot, a whistle blows on the wind.
FORMANT represents the timbral structure of the instrument, defined independent of its pitch. Waves shift across the range, bringing to life a series of undertones. There is quicksand between these divisions â€“ tiny moments of uncertainty â€“ where multiphonics reside. These underbranches fold melodies onto themselves far down into microtones.
Frequency modulation feels altogether different, with a pair making the most corporeal of complex oscillators. With integral FM indexing, a cross-modulated duo will unleash a snarling Bunyip. With SYNChronicity they will sing the same tongue through their own voice. Self-patched tones open another box of uncertainty. Divided FORMANTS to control frequency; shapeless SQUARES modulating AIR pressure.
