Modular synthesizer + instruments + ritual

We spent 3 days with Cinna Peyghamy to learn modular synthetisor. Cinna who is a composer, instrumentalist of the tombak, built his own modular synthesizer machine and explores improvisational formats connecting the acoustic instrument to the digital spectrum. KIT was able to have a little insight as to how you begin creating your modular synthesizer. KIT was able to engage in jam sessions and performed together in a intimate concert setting.

Cinna Peyghamy was born in Paris in 1995 of Iranian parents. He studied engineering sciences, musicology and computer music in Paris, Montreal and Saint-Etienne. In parallel to his musical activity under the name of Cikkun, he develops a practice as a sound artist. His work revolves around the nature of the instrument and its interactivity with the performer through an approach that develops in three stages: a time of construction of a new instrumental device -the birth-, a time of assimilation and development of a musical vocabulary -the learning- and finally a time of performance -the coming-of-age ritual-. By repeating this process, Cinna Peyghamy makes his artistic practice an initiatory rite that is constantly renewed.
