Sintel is a biologist, visual artist, game creator, and multi-instrumentalist who uses a variety of tuning systems in his work. Our stimulating conversation covers topics such as music theory, software friction/workflow, improvisation/self-teaching, psychoacoustics, and the human genome. Sintel is creating several useful kinds of software for creating microtonal music, most notably an editor using continuous pitch lines, and a script for rendering 12 tone equal temperament melodies in another tuning. Check out his newest album, “Outer Gardens,” and the aforementioned software, below!
