Explore the extremes of sound

Polarities for Padshop 2 by Simon Stockhausen juxtaposes electronic and acoustic sounds, exploring extreme sonic territories which clash with, oppose or complement each other. This confrontation between two poles can happen in various ways: either inside a patch, for example by morphing the sound from frozen to moving, from tonal to noisy, from divine to evil; or by splitting polarized sounds on the keyboard.
