SYNTHORAMA Synthesizermuseum in Luterbach, Switzerland

video upload by peter m mahr

"The SYNTHORAMA in Luterbach is one of two synthesizer museums in Switzerland (the other is the SMEM in Fribourg). This video shows some of the showrooms of Martin Hollinger's museum, which is open to the public on the first Saturday of every month. There are also Sequential and Yamaha showrooms and collections of Italian, Russian and synthesizers from other countries like one from former Czech Republic.

If you own BJOOKS - SYNTH GEMS 1, you will find a large number of the instruments illustrated and with descriptions by Mike Metlay."

Synthorama Synthesizer Museum Switzerland
video upload by Torsten Abel

"In March 2022 I visited the Swiss synthesizer museum "Synthorama" in Luterbach. I had a very nice chat with the owner Martin Hollinger and he gave me his kind permission to film this round trip. Most of the instruments are fully working and in a good shape. Visitors have the ability to play with all that gear. Only a own headphone is needed for the headphone amplifiers under the tables.

If you are planning to visit the Switzerland, make a stop in Luterbach and support Martin Hollinger with a visit. Opening hours are regulary the first Saturday a month 10am - 6pm, but if you contact Martin you can ask him for a private tour."

-- See the Synthorama and Synthorama Matrix labels below for more. The Synthorama Matrix label will bring up posts from my visite back in 2008.

How to discover SYNTH GEMS

video upload by peter m mahr

"Making of SYNTH GEMS1. The new book of BJOOKS.

Written by Mike Metlay
Concept, and design: Kim Bjørn
Editing team: Chris Meyer, Marc Doty, Gordon Reid, Collin Russell and Kim Bjørn
Copy editing: Diana Smethurst
Image editing: Kim Bjørn
Additional image editing and illustration: Natascha Bondo Bjørn"

"Text from the back cover:

SYNTH GEMS 1 is your guide to an eclectic and amazing collection of synthesizers as art. Experience the history, technology, and sonic innovation of electronic music in a completely new way.

With their widely diverse designs and intentions, synthesizers offer a world of fascination. What thoughts and emotions guided their creators? What do they say about the era when they were created? How do their form and function define one another, and the music they make?

As much for serious synth enthusiasts as for newcomers to electronic music, SYNTH GEMS 1 is an enlightening look into this wonderful world of vintage synthesizers.

An art gallery of electronic aesthetics

SYNTH GEMS 1 takes you on a tour of over 60 remarkable keyboards — large and small, famed and rare, elegant, beautiful, and brutal… and ranging from classics that define entire genres to rare oddities that bring their own grace to the world.

Each synthesizer is presented in a series of finely detailed photographs, with a discussion of its origins and importance. From the dawn of commercial synthesis to the close of the Twentieth Century, the lives and times of these unique instruments are chronicled in exquisite pictures and thoughtful stories – mingling music, technology, commerce, and visual art.

Meet the synthesizer

Besides a brief introduction to the basic elements of synthesizer design, as well as a comprehensive Glossary, the book is rounded out by tours of the three museums that opened their collections to be photographed, and a selection of resources for further study: books, films, educational initiatives, online resources – even ways to play with these sounds at home.

Known classics and significant rarities

Explore the designs and read the stories behind instruments from famous brands such as ARP, Casio, Clavia, Korg, Moog, Oberheim, Roland, Sequential, and Yamaha – as well as vintage gems from Crumar, Electronic Dream Plant, Elgam, E-mu, Ensoniq, Fairlight, Kawai, Gleeman, Lord Synthesisers, Steiner-Parker, Technics, Waldorf, and more.

The GEMS Series from Bjooks celebrate the inner and outer aesthetics of electronic musical instruments:

Detailed and beautiful color photographs, taken specifically for this series
Insightful discussion of the technical details – and the historical significance – of each instrument
Clear and inviting introductions to the concepts that guide these designs"

"All sounds in the track to this video are from Club of the Knobs’ SYNTHESIZER MODEL 15.

The pad at the beginning consists of a few samples which I recorded into an AKAI MPC4000 to play the sound polyphonically. I was surprised by the quality once I played the pad the first time. The other sound at the beginning is VCO1 C921 modulating C904a. For the sound which probably gives the speakers a decent workout I have used the C921 as LFO. Listen also to the sounds in the high frequencies. For the Arpeggio I have used the ARP from the C952 Keyboard Controller.

Beside the pad all other sounds are directly recorded from the M15’s output."
