Break free! -> Micro tonality and “other” tunings

Musicians tend to not always comply with the norm and that’s a good thing, where else should innovation come from? Who else but the artists in our society should move borders? Nevertheless, most musicians still go through this one door that ties them to a norm they may not even notice. “A440 or A4 (also known as the Stuttgart pitch), which has a frequency of 440 Hz, is the musical note of A above middle C and serves as a general tuning standard for musical pitch.

New 100 series available and Steve H with his Buchla at SUPERBOOTH17

There are some synthesizers in the history of electronic music that are surrounded by a special mystic aura.

Fideuà and synths – Modular Day Barcelona 2017

There were probably more guests on site than last year. A rain shower had its premiere this year, but as it drove the visitors straight into the exhibitor’s hall, it was not really unwelcome at all, except perhaps by the chefs that were cooking a Catalan paella (Fideuà). For them it was quite a fight to keep the pan dish from degenerating into a fish soup… which luckily didn’t happen! On the exhibitor side there have...
