An Interview with Barry Schrader Question 6E: Monkey King (2005-2007)
Click here for the next installment of my interview with Barry Schrader. This one covers Monkey King (2005-2007), featuring the Yamaha TX816 and several computer applications, particularly FM8. As I'm finding with all of Barry Schrader's compositions, this one has a great story to go along with it. Once there, it is recommended that you start each video before reading each corresponding section. You can then read along as each part plays.
Also remember to scroll up for previous sections of the overall interview once there, if you haven't read them already, or come back to this post and click here to get to the top. There some incredible bits of synth history here. It's not often we get to follow the story of an artist that was not only there at the birth of it all, but one who continues to embrace new synthesis technology with a focus on making music, throughout the years. Don't miss this. Bookmark it for later if you have to.
