So… let’s talk synths.  Specifically, modular synths.  Not your average piano-style format, a modular synthesizer involves patch chords that link up modules performing different functions – producing a soundwave, filtering, sequencing, etc.  If that’s confusing, it’s because modular synthesizers are the future!  However, we must step back and realize that the format has actually been around since the 1960s.  Don Buchla specialized in his modular Music Boxes throughout the 60s and 70s, but the proliferation of affordable digital synths moved the modular style to the margins of production… until today.  We want to shed light on the rebirthed DIY modular movement, pay homage to the legendary Buchla 200, and celebrate the modernized 2005 reintroduction of the Buchla 200e.  Our program, titled ‘Source of Uncertainty‘, provides a platform for some of the artists exploring the Buchla 200(e) and DIY modules, and allows YOU to demo them.

In order to put these concerts together, and because we are non-profits, we need your fundraising help.  Please get an idea of the project and its historical importance by watching and sharing the video at www.indiegogo.com/sourceofuncertainty.  Forward this email to your synthusiast friends.  As part of the program, we have a series of interviews on Art on Air.  The first with headliner Morton Subotnick aired last Friday if you want to hear Mort’s storytelling and singing, -///stream: http://artonair.org/show/model-266-morton-subotnick
