brothercyst: BUCHLAS

Friday, June 25, 2010


Do you know what a Buchla 100 Modular System is?  It's basically the earliest synthesizer used to create electronic musical compositions.  My dad wrote a blog post for the Library of Congress website about how the composer Morton Subotnick, for whom the Buchlas were created, donated them to the LOC.

When I was at Illinois I got to mess around with some great-sounding filters that had at one time been part of a Buchla. Good of Subotnick to donate them.
