Angelo Fraietta: created the CV to MIDI controller circuit board located inside the instrument
The Poseidon is an interface designed originally for an installation as a controller for a granular synthesis water soundscape. It collects CV data from sliders and audio from an inbuilt microphone. The CV is converted to MIDI and sent via a standard MIDI cable. The Audio is sent as audio via an audio cable that is connected to the MIDI cable. The MIDI and audio is processed by a computer running a granular synthesis program written in jMusic that generates the soundscape. The computer itself remains out of sight to the audience.
