The Six Fantasies Machine (SFM) is a software instrument that simulates sounds from Paul Lansky’s classic computer music piece from 1979, Six Fantasies on a Poem by Thomas Campion. The paper describes the design of the instrument and its user interface and how it can be used in a methodological approach called the epistemology of simulations by Godøy. In imitating phrases from Lansky’s piece and enabling the creation of variants of these phrases, the user can get an experience of the essential traits of the phrases. Moreover, the instrument will give the user hands-on experience with processing techniques that the composer applied, albeit with a user-friendly interface
