I think to the extent that you like Soma Synths an appreciation of Vlad’s interests in moral and ethical philosophy and humanism and how those interests inform his design philosophies are in order.
I couldn’t help but notice design elements in Ornament-8 that mirror some things discussed in the book. An instrument designed as a series of 8 identical units, much like the makeup of a small tribe. Interactions between one cell and another introduce diversity to the sequence; the interactions of identical circuits configured in many different can produce many different interactions, the unpredictability of a group of any number of individuals.
I understand that Ornament was designed by Vadim, but the demonstration of interactions and behaviors really struck out to me in reading the third and fourth chapters.
