    The Aloe vera Synthesizer is a musical instrument which integrate memristor into analog synthesizer modules. The memristor is a fourth fundamental circuit element theorized by Leon Chua in 1971. It is less familiar than the other three (the resistor, capacitor and inductor). The Aloe vera is one of the materials which shows the property of memristor. In this project, I explore not only the new possibilities of musical expression which arise from integrating the Aloe vera memristor into a circuit of analog synthesizer module, but also the possibilities of expression which arise from collaboration with non human agency.
