FOURSES DE HANNES HOETZL
CHIARA MADE THIS FWYRALL
Hi Pete,This Fryall is not what I expected. No, it's
so much more I can't find words. I finished mine about a week or so ago and
have messed with it for a couple of hours. The sounds, patterns, etc. were impressive.
Well about 20 minutes ago I was blown out of my chair! I made a cord to add
an external signal and hooked it up to a little machine a built I call the juice
boxx. It's preety loud and I've always run it through a mixer so I installed
the zener. I got the fryall started and really puttin out. I then turned on
the juice box and started to hit the buttons. The JB took over the Fryall and
started it on a new pattern and then the fryall started in on the JB warping
its beats, and then the JB went into a CRAZY ASS LOOP that just got sicker and
sicker and sicker! I AM IN SHOCK! My life has been changed. ... My plans at
first were to paint the case but the wood is too beautiful to cover up. I included
a photo of the two beating each other up on my office floor. Thanks, Joe M./Mrfishboy
Dear Mr Fishboy, thanks, and I encourage you to also
experiment with a 12 Volt DC wallwart as power supply, it get's the speaker
ALAN FROM ENGLAND MADE THIS FYRALL
Fourses made for A.J. of Illinois in the Post-Baroque
The tuning is the "Raga Mode":
.015uF .015uF .1uF 10uF
.01uF .01uF .47uF 10uF
Fyrall and Fourses for Neurologist Dr. Stewmandu
GEOFF HANSLLER of CHIAGO made this FYRall.
Fyrall by Peter Foti: the objects in the back are variable
resistance patch cords. the small knobbed one is 500k linear. The one with the
crank is a 10 turn 100k. I wired all 3 contacts on the pots so you can sort
of morph between sounds. They have suction cups attached to them so you can
stick 'em down and turn the knob with one hand. Originally, I wanted to stick
them to the instrument itself when using them, but the finish isn't smooth enough
for them to stick very long. they stick pretty good to the table, tho.
The bottom six switches are for section z caps, the
top 4 for the parasite ones.
Detail of Scotts Fourses
Luke Abbott from Hollycot,
High Common, North Lopham, Diss, Norfolk, UK sends these Fourses Pictures. Here's
what he says:
"As you can see, I've decorated the thing with a cube, I've been reading
'Flatlands' and seem to be putting cubes on on everything recently... These
3 mp3s are the Fourses with a little bit of accidental delay due to me not muting
the record channel on my mixing desk, but it sounded good like that so I left
Nice Oldwood Floor, Luke:
"The Fourses set up with a bent TR626 and a midi to switch unit being
sequenced from my laptop, mp3's 04, 05 and 06 are recordings of this set up...
(I think I'm trying to control chaos by sequencing the Fourses, what a silly
thing to try and do!)."

hello Spooky!! Ben sends this proof that kittens worldwide
want to pose with a kittennettik.
Ricardo sends these pictures from Portugal. He has some
great decoration ideas!!
Angie and Rodrigo of MIAMI made this beautiful pair of
textured post-apocalyptic but also very 'neon' neo-classical pink.
Jason Warrinor made this fine fyrall
Scott from DC says: Here is one of two pictures of the
fources I made, I used some bigger knobs for each of the eight noise worlds
then flanked them military style with two smaller ones for the cock and the
speaker level. I tried to stain the box heavy metal guitar style, but brian
from mouthus said it looks like a cigar box, funny. I like to play the pins
with my tongue, love the brass aftertaste.
So here is a detail of how I did the dual cap swtiches,
I decided that toggles would be a problem for me, because they would probably
break if I had the box in a bag on say the chinatown bus, so these little radioshack
slide switches are good cause they dont stick out and wont break, but it was
a bitch using expoxy cause I ended up expoying the slides so it took time to
loosen them up. AnyhoThis mod really lets me slow it down dub style or wreak
havoc with the tiny caps. Dereks button mod is also very cool and useful, I
might try adding a few of those buttons.

And here's a Fourses in Oak.
Daniel from Ohio sends this picture of his fyrall with
special aviator's lenses:
here is my moonstone fry'all. shot out from
the moon and flew into the earth's atmosphere. hit the earth's surface on some
remote island near thailand. luckily it had a dc port so i could plug into my
wall.. i have ordered some crystals that would fit the light window holes perfectly.
it's hard to tell but there's a little crystal already in the 4 nobbin section.
there will be some nice crystals epoxed in on the bigger holes but for now is
those glass pilot lenses that fit in there..
the first thing i got hip to in your suggestions was to make a cord to attach
to external signals. so i made that and plugged it into a preamp. from the preamp
is a small contact mic i taped onto my clarinet reed. so i plugged into the
cuck and started clucking on the clarinet. this was the was my first sit down...
so all you are hearing is nothing from the fry'all unless i make some gesture
on the clarinet.. i could simply lick a reed and the fry'all would react some
way.. i could violently shake the clarinet and it would do another.. when you
hear a piercing type modulated tone that is me actually playing the clarinet..
i am playing some multiphonics on the clarinet followed by overblowing to get
even higher overtones... then you hear a short jewish scale and a fade out.
it's just me screwing around.. but hell.. it's a very powerful effects box for
playing musical instrument into.. i can see myself playing these things live
chester from michigan made an external blinky box to project
the light patterns of his fourses onto children:
"Also, I recently finished the LED blinky box that
I ask advice about. ... I ended up having a dedicated frosted plexi front box
of 8 LEDs connected to the fourses with a 15pin serial cable umbillicus. ...
Socketed all the LED so I can change colors."
this is Rodrigo from Miami's Fourses check out the ash
Bbob from cleveland sends these pix of his fourses, working
with a modular synthesizer
says BBOB: "the toggles on the left are 3-way selectors
for the hairy caps ... the knob is to select the spesal cuck hairycap. i like
having the 2 transferstation inputs in the center--i leave my thumbs there, and
then pick up signals from the pets w/ my fingers--so i'm thinking about using
magnets or velcro to anchor them...."
scott of greogia sends his hippofyrallpus
hee iss the recipe for scott's hairy capacitors on his
.1 mfd (replaced 10 mfd)
.022 mfd (replaced 22 mfd)
.01 mfd (replaced 100 mfd)
scott is pointing out with his camera, that if you swirl
the camera in the dark and take a picture of the lights on the fyrall, you can
get some very interesting
"recordings" of the strange patterns they are makin.
these are some cool tron style chaodata loops. recorded
with scott's fyrall : giant
tylor of frisco, made this fourses
a detail, he said he made a trench with a dremel and then
poured in that trippy paint
