Messe proved a feeding frenzy for synth lovers – at least those who’ve followed the career of John Bowen – and you’d need to have been around some to be there from the start! Starting in the 1970’s as a fresh faced Moog clinician, John presented himself at the door of another legendary synth designer Dave Smith – you know Prophet 5, MIDI, that sort of thing – on a mission to blag some free gear to feed his own musical needs – and use in his work as the Moog clinician. From there a fruitful relationship ensued, with the outcome being many classic Sequential Circuits Inc synths, sequencers and drum machines, and the rest as they say, is history. In a brief lull between Musik MESSE and pre flying back to the US to continue development of the new hardware synth the Solaris, we talked to John about the past, the present and the future. This episode replaces our usual weekly Sonic TALK round table discussion. Normal service resumed next week (25th April 2007).
