dc.description.abstractDirty Electronics and Jack Featherstone come together through Artists & Engineers in the creation of a range of electronic sound modules. The work is a collection of printed circuit boards where the design is distributed across multiple boards. Polytik (a play on the word polyptych) explores electronic components, not only for functionality, but also their visual qualities, where components are laid out in abstract and graphical patterns. Circuit board production processes of coloured protective lacquers, copper traces, tin coatings and screen prints inform the design. Each circuit board is part of a customisable modular environment that combines noise generation and alternative electronic sound synthesis. The hybrid analogue/digital device investigates the intersection between generative system and gestural instrument, producing a palette of sounds from angular rhythmic sequences to abstract noise.en
