Blippoo playing a Buchla 261e

February 24, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized 

Basic test of a Rob Hordijk Blippo Box controlling a Buchla 200e.

This is a Blippoo Vers.2 – Lots of tricks as e.g. the proximity sensor are not used.
This is just as a quick vid for the muffwiggler brothers and sisters!

Rob Hordijk’s BLIPPOO BOX is an audio sound generator that operates according to the principles of chaos theory. By designing the Blippoo Box, he attempted to bridge a crossover space between abstract (sonic) art, music and artistic craftsmanship. In the hands of performing musicians the Blippoo Box becomes an electronic music instrument that invites performers to improvise with the chaotic nature of the box. Despite this chaotic behavior, the produced sounds have particular characteristics that are roughly predictable and enable a performer to build a performance around a composed scheme.

The Infamous Blippoo Box

“By using a nonlinear feedback system, patterns are created that exhibit chaotic properties like attractors, bifurcations, etc. Second, the filter also uses a nonlinear feedback system that can go into ranges where bifurcations occur, which results in the creation of ‘undertones’, where the period doublings create harmonic partials that are lower in frequency as the signal fed into the filter.” Rob Hordijk
