Thomas Dimuzio & Buchla Modular [Episode 157]

Published on Jul 9, 2019 CatSynth TV

"While filming the rehearsal Polly Moller Springhorn's Tomography Fortunae, we had a chance to talk with Thomas Dimuzio about the Buchla modular synthesizer he will be using in the performance. His system is based around modules from the Buchla 200e system (including 259e and 258e oscillators and an FM radio tuner) along with clones by Mark Verbos and Mike Peak.

Tomography Fortunae will be premiered at the Outsound New Music Summit on July 26, 2019, at the Community Music Center, 544 Capp Street, San Francisco. (Pre-concert talk at 7:30PM, show at 8PM.)

'omposer, collaborator, experimental electronic musician, multi-instrumentalist, improvisor, sound designer and mastering engineer - Dimuzio has been busy doing his thing(s) since the late 1980's, but is still only known to a small circle of electronic music enthusiasts. A true sonic alchemist who can seemingly create music events out of almost anything, Dimuzio's listed sound sources on his various releases include everything from "modified 10 speed bicycle" and "resonating water pipe" to short-wave radios, field recordings, loops, samplers and even normal instruments such as clarinet and trumpet. And while his wide range of musical interests make it impossible to pin a label on him, Dimuzio clearly has an insider's knowledge of older experimental musical forms such as musique concrete and electroacoustic, as well as more current dark ambient, noise and post-techno styles.'
