Subquantum Kinetics is a novel microphysics paradigm that incorporates concepts developed in the fields of system theory and nonequilibrium thermodynamics. One of its distinctive features is that it begins at the subquantum level for its point of departure. By comparison, conventional physics and most alternative physics theories begin with mathematically quantified observations of physical phenomena at the quantum and macrophysical level and attempt to deduce physical theories based on those observations. Since the conventional approach must take into account numerous experimental observations, the end result is a fragmented and often contradictory set of theories which must later be sewn together with mathematical acrobatics. Such “unified field theories” more closely resemble a patchwork quilt than a contiguous fabric.

Instead of beginning with physical observations, subquantum kinetics begins by postulating a set of well-ordered reaction processes that are proposed to take place at the subquantum level. Collectively, these reaction processes compose what is termed the transmuting ether, an active substrate that is quite different from the passive mechanical ethers considered in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. It further proposes that the concentrations of the substrates composing this ether are the energy potential fields that form the basis of all matter and energy in our universe. The operation of these ether reactions causes wave-like field gradients (spatial concentration patterns) to emerge and form the observable quantum level structures and physical phenomena (e.g., subatomic particles with mass, charge, spin, and force field effects and electromagnetic waves).”


Host entity of the 6U format. Meticulously specified by Grant Richter in the 2000s, gathering a reputation as the premiere format for exploratory musicians due to sound quality, massive scope for variation in timbre and dreamlike workflow. Later revised by Cary Grace and available to this day.

Hinton Instruments

Hard to even believe the sonic history of Graham Hinton, cutting his teeth as a nuclear engineer, key involvements at EMS (yes, that EMS), and later becoming the leading designer for SSL (also based in Oxford), overseeing developments that are now industry standard across the board. For all our benefits he brought these skills to the synthesizer domain and we highly recommend use of his power supplies, and suggest considering his modules, too.
