Love Hultén Merges Audio-Visual Experiences with Mid-Century Aesthetics in His Elaborate Synthesizers
December 7, 2023
Whether ocean-themed, compact with a slide-out keyboard, or installed vertically on the wall, Love Hultén’s elaborate custom synthesizers (previously) are one-of-a-kind. Combining a love for woodworking and sound art, the Gothenburg, Sweden-based artist and designer merges electronic elements with a wide range of console designs evocative of early computers and mid-century industrial control systems. Incorporating playful elements from video games or aesthetic themes—”C O U S T E A U” features oxygen tank details and a custom MIDI crab—Hultén activates each sculptural instrument into original audio-visual experiences.
