Synthesist Cayce Fischer will discuss her process of exploration and employing creative constraints in composition. Modular synthesizers are touted as a limitless playground—but building a modular instrument, and the creative choices that inform that instrument and how it can be patched, can be guides to experimentation within carefully-considered limits. This talk will include demos.
