Subharmonicon is a semi-modular polyrhythmic analog synthesizer designed for the exploration of sequences that unfold and evolve over time, spiraling through 6-tone subharmonic chords and organic polyrhythms.
Subharmonicon’s unique approach to music-making is inspired by the innovative ideas on electronic instruments and experimental music that emerged during the 1930s and 1940s. Combining music and math, these early avant-algorithmic concepts laid a foundation for our modern exploratory practices.

Subharmonicon is capable of complex sounds and patterns, yet is incredibly simple to use. With 2x VCOs, 4x Subharmonic Oscillators, 2x 4-Step Sequencers, and 4x Rhythm Generators, Subharmonicon creates a rich harmonic kaleidoscope that divides into itself until everything that is up becomes down.
