[Visually Sound Sunday: Nova Drone Sound and Light Synth]

Check. This. Out.

A line of homemade synths built by Troy’s Nonhorse (G. Lucas Crane) and Casper Electronics (Pete Edwards) that provides a visual element to the crazy analog drones produced by the synth.

Unfortunately, this model is sold out. Plenty of other toys are available though at Casper Electronic’s website. See description of specs below.

From Impose Magazine’s website: THE NOVA DRONES OFFERS 9 POTENTIOMETERS, 9 SWITCHES, 6 OSCILLATORS, 3 OSCILLATOR SYNC INPUTS AND AN EPIC 15 VOLTAGE OUTPUTS AS WELL AS 3 HIGH CURRENT OUTPUTS FOR CONTROLLING EXTERNAL LEDS. ALL OF THE INS AND OUTS HAVE BEEN ROUTED TO A PROTOTYPING BREADBOARD AT THE BOTTOM OF THE UNIT WHICH ALLOWS FOR LIBERAL EXPERIMENTATION AND DEVELOPMENT OF CUSTOM CIRCUITS. THE PROTOTYPING AREA IS ESPECIALLY USEFUL FOR SYNCING THE OSCILLATORS OF 2 OR MORE NOVA DRONES TOGETHER. THE NOVADRONE HAS THREE SEPARATE CHANNELS WHICH GENERATE SOUND AND CONTROL THE BRIGHTNESS OF THE THREE COLORS IN A TRI COLOR LED. THE SOUND AND LIGHT COME FROM THE SAME ELECTRICAL SIGNAL. YOU ARE LITERALLY SEEING WHAT YOU HEAR.


[Free Music Friday: Nonhorse, ‘Nova Crimes’]

Free download of Nova Crimes cassette by Nonhorse (G. Lucas Crane). Catch Nonhorse perform in Troy tonight. 

Track 1 on the NOVA CRIMES Tape by NONHORSE. Green Age “Records” Brooklyn NY 2011

From Soundcloud site: In the NOVA forest (under 63rd and 8th ave) there grows a special fruit that grows off of radio waves. if you are being mugged for your implants, a common occurence, run into the nova forest and try to grab the lower hanging fruit. if you succeed turn and face your attacker and squeeze hard. the fruit will stun them with a thunderclap and the tree itself will gather you gently in its umbrella leaves.

The RainSwamps of Bogota Had a merciless dictator. He liquified his people in one fell swoop.

Side B Track 2 Of NOVA CRIMES by Nonhorse.

The Weaker hand was trained better to unburden the norms of their trinkets. All victims refuse to see the shrunken, twisted hand that does the actual lifting. He is caught by a posion orb sting involving twenty PIs. Green Age “records” Brooklyn NY, 2011

[Preview 06.27.12: Oh Canada, Can, and G. Lucas Crane]

So much good stuff to get to tonight on The Upstate Soundscape. We’ll hear a trio of new tracks from Canadian artists Magic Shadow (Hamilton), M. Mucci (Guelph), and Kyle Bobby Dunn (Ontario).

We’ll preview a great show in Troy this Friday featuring DC’s Insect Factory, Brooklyn’s Public Speaking, and Troy’s very own G. Lucas Crane as Nonhorse.

Some other great new sounds to get to as well from the likes of Damian Valles and High Aura’d, plus we’ll hear a selection from the just released (and totally sick) Lost Tapes Box Set by Can.

As usual there will plenty of other surprises in store. The weirdness will hit your airwaves starting at 9pm on 91.3FM WBNY. Stream at WBNY.org.
