Two beautiful intimate concerts in recent days.
First was a private concert for synth pioneer Don Buchla at his home in Berkeley California. I first encountered his instruments in 1975 when I played a Buchla 200 at the Oberlin conservatory. Then over the years I played with his Lightening, his Thunder, and his 200e. Close fried, engineering genius, and unrepentant 1960s freak. Love him.
Then on to Seattle for a private concert for Randy Jones of Madrona Labs, the creator of the Buchla-inspired Aalto virtual synthesizer, which is my synthesizer of choice these days.
That is a lot of brain power and creativity between those two.
It was an honor.
