Additional details on the series from Giorgio Sancristoforo:

"I’m very happy to share my works at the prestigious Ernst Krenek Institut where I had the chance to play for four days and nights an original 1967 SFTMC Buchla 100 once owned by the Austrian Composer Ernst Krenek and now exhibited at his museum in Krems an der Donau Austria.

Krenek has been one of the most prolific composers of the XX Century, he has written pieces for theatre ballet opera symphonies electroacoustic and electronic music.

In 1938 after the Anschluss Krenek moved to California United States and in the late sixties he met Morton Subotnick and Don Buchla at the San Francisco Tape Music Centre.

In 1967 the same year of Subotnick’s SIlver Apples of the Moon Krenek bought la large Buchla 100 modular synthesizer which he used for a number of electronic and electroacoustic works not yet released to the public (which I hope that will be soon collected in a special release of his edition).

So here I am with Krenek’s amazing Buchla 100, probably one of the rarest and most expensive synthesizers on earth. Working with this breathtaking instrument is pure pleasure."
