In Memoriam Don Buchla
Published on Sep 17, 2016 Peter Maas
"Don Buchla passed away. He was considered a true pioneer with an uncompromising vision of what synthesizers could be. His impact on electronic music was vast; Buchla independently invented the first modern synthesizer, at the same time as Robert Moog, in 1963. I feel blessed owning a remake of the Buchla Music Easel which was one of his last big projects. It is a very versatile instrument but one of it's strenghts is for sure in the melancholic space, well fit to this sad moment. Rest in peace Don."
