Naomi Mitchell is a Los Angeles based interdisciplinary artist, modular synthesizer designer, and educator.
Starting with experiments in circuit bending and lo-fi noise boxes in 2012, Naomi moved onto modular synthesis, and has since cultivated her art and music-making techniques. She began building synthesizers under the Omiindustriies moniker and released her first module, the Dual Digital Shift Register, earlier in 2018. She also records music as Poor Impulse Width Modulation
A co-organizer of the LA chapter of Modular on the Spot, Naomi has led several workshops with FeM Synth Lab, a low-cost monthly night for womxn and non-binary people to learn how to use hardware for electronic music production, meet others, and make music together. Her recent performances include a collaboration with Bana Haffar at a retrospective for Warner Jepson, a live rescoring of Tetsuo the Iron Man with Lauren Bousfield at Dirty Looks’ On Location festival, and as part of an audio/visual modular synthesis night at Handbag Factory in LA.
At Loop, Naomi brings her vast insight to a series of hands-on workshops in modular synthesis and hardware hacking, including a collaborative project with Ricky Graham in the Maker Zone on open source modular design.
