::: Ross Healy (aka Cray) :::
::: VICMOD - Melbourne DIY Modular Synth Builders :::

Ross will provide a glimpse into the world of VICMOD, a group of musicians
and synthesizer enthusiasts who meet monthly in the Melbourne CBD to
discuss and construct modular analog audio synthesizers. Each month the
group builds a different module, often those designed by Ken Stone
(http://www.cgs.synth.net/). Ross will also demonstrate some of the
modules which have been built at VICMOD over the past couple of years.

Experimental electronic artist Ross Healy has been an active member of the
Melbourne music scene since 1988 and has released recordings around the
globe with projects such as This Digital Ocean, Amnesia, 56k Siko Spunji,
and Horaku . These days he releases and performs under the 'Cray' moniker,
making music with his 95 module modular synthesizer as well as software
instruments.

::: AudioMulch 2.0 progress report :::

For the last 2.5 years Ross has been working on a new version of his

is now reaching the final stages of development. Ross will provide a preview
of what he's been working on and will discuss some of the details of the
AudioMulch 2.0 development process.

Ross Bencina is a composer, performer, software developer and digital
instrument maker, with a strong interest in improvised electroacoustic
music. He has performed solo and with collaborators around Australia and
