“That’s Aki, he’s on the Arp 2600. As for the modules, a little bit of everything- Metasonix, 4MS, Malekko/Wiard, Make Noise, The Harvestman, FoH, …. and even a little bit of Buchla in front of the 2600.”

And a bonus pic of Mimì as a kitten:

“She was a pretty sweet kitten before getting a synth addicted cat!”

According to the image names in this anonymous post, the cat’s name is “Tweak” (great name for a “synth cat”).

The ARP 2006 has an interesting story as well:

Another story to make you feel warm and fuzzy inside.
“around may of this year in seattle, there was a electronics recycling thing going on which i helped with… it was insane piles of electronic waste, all of which would be disassembled and sold as scrap. during this event i asked the guy in charge if i could have a old ‘music keyboard’ i found (arp 2600 + 3620keys)! (no one knew what it was but me!!!!) once home i and it was taken apart for cleaning i found it had the old ‘moog filter’ and was missing 1 speaker,only thing wrong with it! plus someone had modified it (8 extra holes plus toggle switch) sorta like 70s circuit bending i suppose.” via anonymous. Not sure about the cat connection, but there it is.

New Podcast: Synth Summit at Luggage Store Gallery, July 2004

Tonight's podcast is an excerpt from the “Synthesizer Summit” at the Luggage Store Gallery in San Francisco. Basically, the performance is an improvisation by several artists playing hardware synths. If I recall correctly, the artists and their respective synths were:

Synthia Payne: Roland JP8000
Amar Chaudhary: E-MU Proteus 2000 (Mo'Phatt + Vintage) and Morpheus
LX Rudis: Oberheim Matrix 12
Jim Ryan: Arp 2600
Will Grant: E-MU UltraProteus

Note: many subscribers may have heard another excerpt fromt the Synthesizer Summit that I accidentally released a few weeks back instead of the advertised Woodstockhausen 2003 performance (that has since been corrected).
