Using the Lawrence Public Library's custom modular analog synthesizer, avant-garde electronic performer Luke DuBois will perform live. This performance will be a unique opportunity for the community to see this instrument being used.
The modular synthesizer is a type of synthesizer consisting of separate specialized modules. The specialization is usually in the module being designed to allow the modification or processing a signal, such as the frequency (oscillator), spectrum (filter), or amplitude (amplifier). The modules are not hardwired together but are connected together with patch cords, a matrix patching system, or switches to create a patch.
Luke holds a doctorate in musical composition from Columbia University and is currently the director of the Brooklyn Experimental Media Center at the NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering. More on his recordings and career can be found at https://cantaloupemusic.com/artists/r-luke-dubois.
