KOMA Elektronik Based in Berlin Germany has created a new Electroacoustic Workstation called the Field Kit which has been specifically designed to enable users to amplify ordinary objects and use the sound in musical and experimental ways.
Described as the ‘Musique Concrète’ for the people. the workstation has this week launched by a Kickstarter and has already raised triple its required pledge goal thanks to over 265 backers with still 29 days remaining on its campaign.
Watch the video below to learn more about this unique Electroacoustic Workstation and its features and benefits. The development team behind the KOMA Field Kit explain more about its development and construction.
The new KOMA Elektronik Field Kit is the perfect tool for everyone who would like to experiment with electroacoustic sound. Use everyday objects, amplify them and use them to make sound, like our heroes John Cage and David Tudor used to do!
The Field Kit is optimized to process signals from microphones, contact microphones, electromagnetic pickups and able to run DC motors and solenoids. On top of that it can receive radio signals and convert signals from switches and sensors into control voltage! We have finished development of the Field Kit, are ready for production and we need your support to make it happen!
It’s all about the things you connect to the The Field Kit! To get you started we decided to offer an Expansion Pack with a bunch of different sources that you can use and connect to create your own signature sounds. The Field Kit boasts 7 separate functional blocks all focussed on receiving or generating all types of signals. They are designed to operate together as a coherent electroacoustic workstation or alternatively together with other pieces of music electronics with the ability to use control voltage signals.
