Analog Synthesizer Workhop in Locarno [25. März 2012, Deutsch]

Workshop sur le synthétiseur analogique à Locarno [2 juin 2012, en français]

Workhop sul sintetizzatore analogico a Lugano [22 aprile 2012, in italiano]

Themes and topics: 1. A brief history of electronic music [the early synthesizers and electronic music studios, 1950s - 1960s]. The modern age: from avantgarde to popular Electronica. 2. Instruments and manufacturers: the early electronic instruments [1930s - 1940s]; modern voltage controlled synthesizers [Bob Moog and Don Buchla]; commercial
manufacturers [1970s to present]. 3. The neo-analogue Renaissance. Why analogue? Discrete vs. integrated vs. digital circuits; the formats: Moog Modular clones, the Eurorack system, other formats; selected neo-analogue manufacturers; a guide to purchasing: vintage or neo-analogue? 4. The analogue synthesizer explained: modules and functions; basic
modules, auxiliary and "expert" modules, analogue sequencers; external sound-processing devices: what's best? 5. And finally: let's put your hands on the machines and play with a vintage Minimoog D and a Eurorack modular [Analogue
Systems, Make Noise, Pittsburg].

Media: laptop and beamer [screenshow with sound demos], a vintage Moog Minimoog D, a Eurorack modular, PA system.
