Topic: Capsule Titan Modular Synthesizer

Recommended Posts


The Titan is a rare beast, we only produce them in very small runs.

Titan, the largest moon of Saturn, has a thick atmosphere able to carry sound waves. An atmospheric and clamorous inspiration to our series of Titan modules… For a long time, we’ve imagined the music of the space to be a sweet song of gods, crystalline magical sounds. We thought space to be a silent place, cold and empty. Since 2004, the Cassini-Huygens mission has been making sound recordings in space, different from anything we had imagined; shocks of particles at a prodigious speed, a deep unsettling chaos. The ESA/NASA has referred to theses recordings as "alien sounds"… The Cassini-Huygens mission started the exploration of Titan in 2007.

The Capsule Titan is an immersive experimentation, delving into the mysteries of space through the medium of sound design and music. In a way, the Capsule Titan is a simulation station able to reproduce the journey of the sound waves crossing Titan’s dense, orange atmosphere and offer the possibility to modulate parameters like the thickness of the haze, the ionisation of the magnetosphere, and Titan’s magnetic glow (or low frequency zones). To amplify these sounds, we’ve chosen a discrete amplification.
