Yamaha CS 60 - She is Alive

Published on Jul 31, 2019 Metralon

The playlist above starts with a demo with the description directly below, followed by a number of restoration videos.

"SKIP to 1:49 if the LFO detuning at the beginning of this video is too much.

Very first improvisation after one year of restoration work.

Ok that was a lie: it was my third improv. The first one was utterly magical and was not recorded; at one time the synth spoke to me, I swear! That was a couple of days ago. The second improv happened yesterday and wasn't all that great. So you'll have to do with this third one as a first encounter. In the notes of John Williams: d4-e4-c4-c3-g3.

With due apologies for the length and randomness of the improv; the CS60 universe envelops you and before you know it you're 40 minutes in.
