Electronic Sound Synthesis
All sounds are electronic - after all, the human ear converts sound waves into electrical impulses that get sent to the brain. Mickey Delp will explain how a synthesizer turns electrical impulses into sound waves. He will discuss the basics of electronic sound synthesis which covers electronics, physics, biology, and history. Then, he will dive into the inner workings of a synthesizer, demonstrating and explaining fundamental parts of a modular synth. Mickey will also make lots of weird noises for your enjoyment!

NOTE: It is basically the same talk that I gave at Nerd Nite Austin back in March. Here is the video from that event:
