Improvisation in The Ballroom, Smallcleugh Mine, Nenthead with Koma Electronik Field Kit


Published on Apr 24, 2017 John Bowers

"Recorded and performed by John Bowers in The Ballroom, a massive hollowed out space deep in Smallcleugh, a disused lead mine under the North Pennines in England, during Earth Day, April 22nd, 2017. Part of Chthonic, in which Alan Smith, Louise K. Wilson, Peter Matthews and John Bowers lived underground for three days.

The Koma Electronik Field Kit was used, battery operated, with the Expansion Pack to route feedback through rock and wood found down the mine as well as acoustically through the immense reverberant space of The Ballroom. Two DPA omni-directional mics, powered by a Zoom H6, picked up the room sound which was envelope-followed in the Field Kit to trigger a solenoid to provide another feedback routing as it percussed the wood and rock.

via this auction

This one is in and for salve via peahix of optigan.com, who states it is a pretty early example of an all-chamberlin LP.

Indian Melodies on one side.  Melodias Indias on the other.

The cover reads:

"Rendition from Original Sources and Instruments

by Edmond S. Bordeaux and Jean Nilsson.

The back reads the same in Spanish along with:

Translated: "Collection from the Academy of Philosopy La Puerta Mexico"

Oberheim Matrix 6 Analog Synthesizer


via this auction

"Oberheim Matrix 6, analog 6-voice polyphonic synth. The panel overlay shows some damage on the '6' and '9' numbers (see photo), but this does not affect the operation of these buttons, and the keyboard is fully functional. Includes power cord. Please note that the Matrix 6 does not have a stereo output, despite the fact that there are two output jacks labeled Left and Right. These are NOT stereo outputs - they are for setting up keyboard splits with separate outputs, as described in the owner's manual. Unless you specifically have a split patch set up to feed the Right output, you will get no audio there."

Ensoniq EPS Digital Sampler


via this auction

"Ensoniq EPS 13-bit digital sampling keyboard, with 4x memory expander (fully expanded). The photo of the display shows the fully expanded memory; it looks like characters are missing in the display, but this is an artifact of the photo (as a result of the display scanning) - the display works perfectly, and is not missing any characters. Includes 10 floppy disks, original printed manual, and power cord."

E-mu Emax II Digital Sampling Keyboard


via this auction

"E-mu Emax II 16-bit sampler, in excellent condition, with 1MB sample memory, SCSI interface, and internal hard drive."
