Our latest installment of the Graphite instrument  ore now called ‘ground’. Developed on and of in 2011 at steim.  Ground is an audiovisual instrument in which graphite drawings are used a control interface for several electronic instruments. Graphite is a conductor for electricity. By using graphite as a variable resistor (instead of a standard knob) the pitch, amplitude and sound color of sound generators can be controlled. The instrument offers a field of possibilities in which auditive and visual elements are interconnected. Several handmade synthesizers are deployed in a given performance and directed and controlled by the drawings.

Ground evolved during our stay at steim from a interesting concept with very basic sonic possibilities to a ‘mature’ electronic instrument.
