don buchla - 112309 & Skot Wiedman on Don Buchla's Passing
"in 2009 don buchla went to mexico city to do a lecture or visit a friend or both. anyway he ended up performing on a 200e and a recording was made. i'm pretty sure nannick bonnel is playing the piano, unfortunately i don't know who else is participating, if you do please reach out."
The above is from a post on Smile Politely, featuring Skot Wiedman of Motus Mavis and The Hyve Touch synthesizer, who had the following to say on Don Buchla's passing:
"This week has ended on a melancholic note for me. The news of the passing of one of my heroes, musician, engineer, and futurist, Don Buchla, has left me only to contemplate the vastness of his contributions to music, art, and technology. I was fortunate to meet him and couldn't thank him enough for his generous creativity and maverick spirit. His life's work is both an inspiration for me and he continues to be a giant on whose shoulders I proudly stand."
