The second edition of my Maurilia Sound Studio imprint will consist of three versions of my sawtooth-vocoder work, Goyder’s Line (2014-2015), which is a drone-based work realised using Max/MSP, Microkorg, Moog MF-108X and Electroharmonix Memoryman. The work is inspired by George Goyder’s line of South Australian rainfall, using the original line to determine the frequency of a sawtooth wave over a set duration, which is then routed as the carrier signal to the Microkorg’s vocoder. A second line (based upon future climate projections) determines the frequency of the vocoder’s modulation signal. This results in instances of phase cancellation and harmonic overtones, with a predominant drone throughout (provided by the base notes of the vocoder).

Tristan Louth-Robins (*1981, Adelaide, South Australia) is an Australian artist working principally in the medium of sound art. Ideas of sound and its signification are key elements in Louth-Robins' work, traversing the space between the visual and aural his sound art is realised through the mediums of recordings, installation and performance. He is interested in sound and its associative implications - including its relationship to objects, technology, urban space and the natural world. Since 2005 Louth-Robins has performed and exhibited work in Australia and internationally as a solo artist, whilst occasionally collaborating with visual artists, musicians and performers. In 2010 he completed his MA at the Elder Conservatorium of Music, University of Adelaide, South Australia. View all posts by tristanlouthrobins
