Every time I post about Black Cat Sylvester's invention The SynthTable, people ask me, "But how does it work?" Fucked if I know! Seriously, I'm the least technically inclined dude on the planet, unless you want to talk about the technical aspects of hand farts. (I get that. Not sure why, but I do.) Long story short — as far as I can tell — the SynthTable can be programmed with various tones and MIDI cues so that it works sort of like the bastard child of a clock and a trombone. And it's powered by unicorns and you can plug it into Pyramids of Giza to send messages to outer space. Or something like that. Again, I'm not the most technical dude around.
Anyway, Sylvester himself gives us a (much better, less ridiculous) breakdown of how the thing works even if he doesn't spill the beans on what sort of magical gizmos make the thing tick. Hey, it's still patent-pending, cut the guy some slack! Sylvester and The SynthTable also made an appearance on the excellent Flea Market Funk blog, proving that I'm not the only person on earth who's interested in this thing. (HT: DJ Eticut from G.E.D. Soul Records.)
