The Nibbler is a four bit digital accumulator based on CMOS logic. This means that it counts in binary from zero to fifteen, with inputs and outputs for individual bits as well as stepped voltage outputs (digital to analog converters). It does this with individual logic chips instead of a CPU.
The concept here is that counting in binary (and its expression in bits) is inherently musical, and with slow clock speeds we can use it to create both rhythms and modulation voltages (or melodies). At audio rate we can generate subharmonics and modem-like sounds (or noise).
