By assembling modules, source elements and elements for treating sound
(oscillators, generators and transformers)by arranging microintervals,
the synthesizer makes audible the sound process itself, the production
of that process, and puts us in contact with still other elements beyond
sound matter. . . Philosophy is no longer synthetic judgement; it is
like a thought synthesizer functioning to make thought travels, make it
mobile, make it a foce of the Cosmos ( in the same way as one makes
sound travel)"(ATP 343)
