    ..Tom Oberheim?

    zu dem Thema ein Posting drüben bei KB durch Tante_Anna™..
    und zwar hier:

    fand recht interessant, da Herr O. hier gelistet ist und keine Sau weiss, was der so macht - Vermutlich hat der aber auch keinen Bock mehr auf Instrumente..?


    The Dead Presidents Society is a group of friends who share a passion for the influence of technology on music, and who meet every Thursday morning at a coffee house in Berkeley, California. The group's name was born out of the fact that a number of the members were formerly presidents of electronic music product companies that died. :)

    The members are (in alphabetical order):

    Don Buchla is an inventor of many innovative and groundbreaking music synthesizers and music performance controllers, including the 100 through 700 series synthesizers, Marimba Lumina, Thunder, Lightning, Moog Piano Bar and newly-released Series 200E.

    John Chowning is a composer, the inventor of FM synthesis (the foundation of Yamaha's famous DX7 synthesizers) and the former head of CCRMA, Stanford's computer music school.

    John Lazzaro is a research specialist and visiting lecturer at UC Berkeley's Computer Science department, the designer of the network protocol that Apple's Mac OSX uses to send MIDI reliably over networks, and the guy we all ask when there's something we don't know.

    Ingrid Linn is a Diplom Ingenieurin in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology (that's German for masters degree in engineering) and is the person her husband Roger asks when he can't figure out the higher math algorithms in his products.

    Roger Linn is an inventor of electronic music products including the first digital drum machine, the Akai MPC drum machines and the AdrenaLinn guitar processor.

    Max Mathews is known as the father of computer music, having developed the fundamental algorithms for computer music synthesis at Bell Labs in the 1950s.

    Keith McMillen is a designer of many influential electronic music & sound processing products, the founder of electric violin maker Zeta Systems, and a guitarist and founder of the highly innovative TrioMetrik computer music performance ensemble.

    Tom Oberheim is the founder of Oberheim Electronics and Marion Systems, and the creator of some of the most recorded and performed analog synthesizers of the 70s and 80s.

    Dave Smith is the founder of Sequencial Circuits and the creator of the Prophet 5, perhaps the most popular digitally-controlled analog synthesizer of the 80s. He was also the driving force in the creation of MIDI, and the creator of the current Evolver line of analog/digital synthesizers.

    David Wessel is the director of the Center for New Music and Audio Technologies, UC Berkeley's computer music school

  2. Seit einigen Jahren ist Herr Oberheim beim "UC Berkeley Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering" tätig, zumindest bis Ende 2006. Er ist in verschiedenen Projekten involviert.
























    PS: Die Geschichte verfolge ich schon seit geraumer Zeit ;-)

    Und was macht eigentlich Wolfgang Palm?
    Der scheint sich wirklich vollständig aus dem Geschäftsleben zurückgezogen zuhaben.

    John Chowning wohnt in Santa Barbara und genießt seinen Ruhestand. So wie ich ihn verstehe, sieht er sich zwar sehr wohl als Erfinder, das aber eher zufällig, und auch klar mit Stanford verbunden, war jedoch nie Company Owner oder sowas wie Smith und Linn. Ist im Herzen vor allem schon seit jeher Künstler. Was eine Lebenseinstellung ist.

    So ne Bruderschaft sollte sich mal in D formieren, Kandidaten gibt es. Und Einfluss nehmen. Sofern man sie überhaupt ließe :D
