Who I AM

My name is Peter V and I am the creator behind indie-studio Dawesome Music. I am a musician by heart, playing the bassoon and contrabassoon in multiple ensembles and I have a lifelong passion for synthesisers. Also I have an PhD in maths and founded an AI startup 20 years ago. 


I have a couple of core beliefs that drive my work: 


  • You have the talent. And I am so curious to hear what's possible with the instruments I make.
  • Visual Arts can be a source of inspiration for sound design and music and enriches the way you think and create sound.
  • Intuition over numbers. When I make music, I rarely (want to) think in numbers and maths, I want my creative process to flow with intuition.
  • Nuanced response. When I play the bassoon it feels like the instrument and I are united - the instrument responds to every subtle change in tension, breath or posture. This nuanced response is the quality of any good instrument and its this quality I am striving for in the design process of my instruments
  • Simplicity rules. Life is already complex enough. User interfaces shall be as simple as possible, and its worth to go the extra mile. 


Thank you very much for your interest and support! 

Abyss - A Visual Synth

Abyss is a synth with character ... and a bit of fairy dust! 


Sounds are represented as colours - this concept focuses on the "art", rather than "numbers". Its has never been more intuitive and inspiring to create your own signature sound. 


Abyss brings to you fun and fresh, organic sounds for your music and sound design projects.


You have the talent. We have the tools.
