Tetrazzi is the newest incarnation of the Organus series, a mandala of analog oscillator circuits that can cross-modulate to form the empire of infinite circuitry known as pure sonic chaos.

The tetrazzi boards shall be assembled by machine in Colorado, they will be perfect, and sonde-tested here in the workshop in Baltimore.  All you need to complete it is four piezo barres, four bottons, four knobs, two output jacks, twelve studdes of brass, and a battery clip; all the hard stuff having already been done by a machine man!

Electronically, it represents some of the more profound
electronic complices that were developed in the 20th century,
such as
Buchla Source of Uncertainty,
U.S. Navy Phantastron Radar Circuit, and
Piezoelectric Flex Technology.
It is a way to make the touch-sensitivity
of human organs into touch-sensitivity
on the pipe organ, pipe here
meaning "squishing electron flow
via ceramic transducer".
