Me... my spirit... my brain... & Eye... everything else can be somewhat easily replaced or substituted...
(you will realize this for yourself if start having physical problems and/or die)

True, unless you get into making some sort of installation art that continues to play and create music independently of yourself (which is possible).
correct yet it still generally requires "You" somehow... unless you personally train an apprentice... ancient method
have created quasirandomgenerativesequencer that can hypothetically play until something breaks or power goes out...
yet it requires me for doing the system setup & such... & anyone else would be clueless for the most part... unless teach them...
hmmm something for pondering... Thanks for the idea... haven't been thinking about such applications...

I would wonder, then, what the true extent of your influence on the music ultimately would be.  You are correct in pointing out that you would still need to have the plan of how to make the system, and would, most likely, play a part in building it.  However, if the system would then go on to play music completely independent of you, I would think that the longer it does so, the less important you (as the creator) would become.  Alternatively, I suppose that one could also argue that the longer the music plays independently the greater the importance of the creator was - after all, they did make something that was able to operate in such a manner.

I think that Steve Roden did some art installations that center around this idea.  I will have to look into them some more.

picking one piece is difficult. I couldn't imagine getting rid of my Moog DFAM and Mother-32. They show up on nearly everything I record. They compliment eachother well, and are pretty simple, but still deep enough to explore and find new things often. I don't see many PE/noise artists using either one.

I´m definitely interested in the DFAM, it has such a fat and punching sound. Not a very linear one, but really though indeed.

If I have to choose one piace which absolutely I cannot part from doing industrial / harsh noise, I would say it´s my Analogue Heat. Maybe it doesn´t have a strong appeal in the noise circle, still is an amazing machine, with a lot of different solution to characterize, enrich and distort the sound. Plus, work as filter and envelope generator as well, and is fully analogue. A real beast.
Beside that, I usually put a lot of Monotron delay, monotribe and MS20 (both share the same cutoff, which is incredible, and the monotribe has the noise knob which adds a lot of dirt when distort) and, doing harsh noise, my self made metal thing with piezo.

That new FM synth groovebox Elektron are doing sounds very interesting. Way more interested in taking that for a spin than the model samples.

As for indispensible gear...man I adore my trogotronic 657. Ive had it 3 years and it always finds a way into my recordings and live set up.

The DFAM is definitely worth considering. Its an industrial machine for sure. Great for deep pulsing bass, harsh metallic tones, and everything in between.

I'm really tempted to burn my savings for one. MS20 can do deep pulsing bass and harsh metallic tones and probably i wouldn't need a DFAM to make music, but it just looks so immediate and easy to make sick industrial beats with. With the MS20, i have to search for a sound, then record it into a sampler and do that for like 4-8 times to get a kit. With a DFAM it would probably so much faster.

Same here, used both for most of the tracks on Your Truth.
