Beat Engine are handmade instruments built by Mattia Gardenal. The sounds produced by these machines are generated thanks to triggering mechanisms connected to analogue synthesizers and modulation pedals.
To explore new musical territories, Mode Zero tapped into the endless possibilities offered by the digital world. In Mode Zero live shows the machines are connected to a computer that runs a custom designed reactive framework developed with Ableton Live.
The sounds generated with this approach space beyond classic modulation and enter the realm of digital synthesis generating always new original music experiences.
