Koboto Music

"In this episode, we discuss; the origins of sound design for film, some of the career highlights of Ben Burtt, The ARP 2600 and how it was used to create the 'Voice' of R2D2. I also use the modular synths that I have in the studio to re-create the sounds of R2D2. Thanks for watching!"

"In this episode of The Synths of Sci-Fi, We look at the life of Jerry Goldsmith, the history of the Arp 2500 Modular Synthesizer and how it was used to create the epic sounds in Logan’s Run and Close Encounters of the Third Kind."

I remember it freaking me out as a kid. Genuine horror. Hope you can handle it. :)
