Director Chuck Przybyl shared a short doc showing Chicago circuit bender Antoine Kattar at work with his unique cigar box synthesizers. Sounds created from these tools are combined with field recording techniques from electronic music producer Searchl1te. Check out the video below for an outtake reel that provides more insight into the process of building the sound:
This short documentary weaves process, story and sound experimentation into a visceral cinema experience. Box of Sound – documents the process of making a cigar box into a synthesizer by Antoine Kattar: circuit bender, musician, and audio hardware engineer. The box is expertly put to use by Chicago electronic music producer Searchl1te, to create a truly unique song. Searchl1te is also shadowed as he gathers field recordings, breaking glass to create a snare and banging train cars for use as a bass drum.
