Analog Hands = collaborative work
A work by Ben Houston and Arius Blaze combining the synthesis from the subharmonic field by Arius Blaze, the hand plate of the electric hands by Ben Houston and a nice analog delay with slide controls. This was a co-missioned work by special request. The box is hardwood and custom. The Analog Hands is an extremely nasty thing with gut wrenching, ear piercing noise or nice fat analog tones that are altered by where you touch the plate, what points are combined as you press and how hard you touch the plate. We also added some optical controls for the delay in a custom resin lamp which is reminiscent of the old styles (mostly pre-2000) of Arius Blaze.
