I began exploring the idea of the essence synthesis as a reaction to noise music. I do enjoy inharmonic aspects of noise music, but I also realized that it was not my calling, so to speak. It is a fair assessment to say that one’s sample output and production can only be as good as the sample that is the source. The idea behind the Essence-Synthesis is to create a processor that can input any sound and make it functional for sampling and reproduction. This became more important when working on Rain with Monkey Fist (project in progress as of 5 August 2012).
The implementation essentially boils down to an audio processor, 3 harmonizers and an implementation of my bodyFilters. Here is a video that shows a realtime implementation of it as a drawing tool.
