Carya Amara – Sensitivity

SensitivitySensitivity features sounds from just one modular synthesiser, arranged and transformed into music that goes beyond its constraints while still evoking its unique sonic character.

Modular synthesis can be heard in some of Carya Amara’s previous music from the 1980s onwards, but the chance to work with a Buchla system is a rare opportunity.

From the album notes

All the sounds on this album were derived from my experiments with the Buchla modular synthesiser of EMS Elektronmusikstudion in Stockholm, Sweden in June 2014. The finished music features both raw analogue and digitally transformed sounds. Many thanks to EMS for welcoming me as a guest composer in their studios and I hope that the inspiration I felt there can be heard in the resulting music. – Kevin Busby / Carya Amara
