nnirror is the musical project of Michael Cella, an independent musician and software developer based in the midwest USA.

helloworld"Hello world"

He uses custom-built Max/MSP software to control a modular synthesizer in real time. The synthesizer can also control the software, resulting in bi-directional feedback between software and hardware which can produce ultra-chaotic emergent phenomena.

Through the magic of the editing process, hours of material crystallize into music equally rooted in the experimental and the systematic.
