Adding Machines

Adding Machines are long feedback delay systems. They capture the input of a microphone and continuously loop the sound at predefined or evolving intervals. The input folds into itself, and moves around in space. The machines can be controlled manually or set to animate on their own. Adding machines have been used in performances, installations, and as compositional tools for creating complex evolving textures.
