Distortion: A Historic and Technical Perspective

Sunil Solanki takes a look at the historical development and uses of distortion in music, along with a technical analysis of different types of distortion. Musical examples will be used to illustrate and help demonstrate these concepts.

Sunil Solanki has been involved with electronic music for over 20 years. Starting out with hardware he then moved 100% in the box as computers and DAWs rose to prominence. However, over the last 5 years he’s come back to a completely hardware setup with 12u of eurorack, multiple monosynths and samplers and far too many drum machines and effects pedals. He produces music under the AndroidDreams moniker. Please visit instagram for details – Android_dreams_aphex.
