  Work Details  
  The Vox Insecta instrument is an insect voice synthesizer I designed and built into an antique Stenograph machine. The Vox Insecta not only creates insect sounds, but also choirs, orchestral textures and a vast assortment of surreal musical tones. As usual, once I finish an original design I then bend it just as I would any other circuit. The two examples here are from my Threnody to the New Victims of Hiroshima. (CD). All the sounds were generated on the instrument with nothing more than simple reverb added.
