Soda is a semi-modular electroacoustic instrument with several inputs and outputs, which enable interfacing with other audio devices (such as synths, rhythm machines, guitar pedals, etc.). It may be used either as a standalone synth/signal processor or trigger and CV generator. Signal path starts with a jack input, which can be used for connecting an external signal. Its waveform may then be amplified, filtered and fed into the voltage controlled oscillator (VCO), which outputs a frequency modulated ramp waveform signal, ranging from harsh noise to pulsating rhytmic bursts, reminiscent of the external signals characteristics (timbre and amplitude). The circuit has two separate audio outputs - a 3.5mm jack line output and an internal amplifier intended for powering the speaker, which encourage an exploration of various feedback possibilities.

About the artist

Staš Vrenko (1991) born in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Graduated at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana, where he also finished master studies at the Sculpture Department. His interdisciplinary artistic practice combines exploration of various artistic fields with process orientated research, uncovering many different technological and medium- related specifics of the material he is working with, while focusing on innovative and original approaches in various aspects of sound, sound design, field recording, kineticism and segments of performative arts.
