Sonic Manipulations is a company I started to get my inventions in the hands of keyboard players and producers. I believe these MIDI controllers will allow musicians to reach new levels of expression and develop a new standard model for understanding & teaching the synthesizer for performance and composition.
My quest started back in the late 70's when I heard this piece by Tomita. It opened my mind to the expressive possibilities of the synthesizer when you shape the sound while you're playing the notes. Since then I've been designing & building sound-shaping gadgets to record and perform with.
I now want to inspire others to take this approach to synth playing and unlock the true potential of instrument.
