2. Instruments, techniques and choices

This chapter contains a brief description of my electronic equipment. I find it natural to call the units involved instruments, machines and/or devices, since their functions at different times might be associated with all of these labels. I will describe some important features and techniques, while the musical aspects relating to some of these techniques will be further described and discussed elsewhere, particularly in Chapter 3. Reflections about my choice of instruments on an operational level will be presented as I go along, while other important and underlying reasons for these choices will be reflected on towards the end of the chapter. I wish to emphasise that these descriptions are not based on the technological aspects of music technology. Being a trained musician, not a technologist, I focus on the practical use of my instruments and the sounding results, not on the technology involved.
