How Don Buchla Pioneered Synthesizers | Red Bull Music Academy

Published on Apr 17, 2019 Red Bull Music Academy

"In the 1960s musician and designer Don Buchla was among the first wave of enthusiasts to imagine and invent the modern synthesizer as we know it today. In their RBMA lectures Buchla and his acolyte Morton Subotnick, alongside fellow designers Bob Moog, Dave Smith and Tom Oberheim, recall these early days while Suzanne Ciani and Joan La Barbara reflect on the futurism of Buchla's unique approach."

Update: it looks like today is Don Buchla's birthday.

"Today we celebrate the birthday of west-coast synth maverick Don Buchla, whose distinctive design perspective has helped to build the foundation for modern experimental synthesis and continues to inspire new sounds ⚡️."

Moving this one on top for a little bit considering. This post originally went up at 12:15.
