Buchla Easel Performance From Alessandro Cortini

A very musical dude      05/03/14

I'm a BIG fan of Alessandro Cortini, as well as his excellent solo work with SONIO - check out RED and BLUE for some synth based songs produced to perfection, he's currently an integral part of NIN.

Currently on tour with NIN in Australia, he took some time out to play a solo gig in Sydney yesterday at the 107 Projects Gallery performing at the New Sound Waves Modular Synth group.

Probably one of the leading Buchla Easel live performers - a real treat. And be sure to check out SONOIO work - its sublime INMHO.

The track Minutes is a corker

The great visuals are by Cobramatic/Autoglider.

Recorded on a Samsung Galaxy S4 phone. Sorry for the shaky camera work.

Quite nice; and all the better for the absence of Mr. Reznor's adolescent screaming.

It is a Buchla though... Can anybody explain to me why it doesn't just sound like farts and Dr. Who?

For Doctor Who you would have to use an EMS Synthi 100.

Yes, I too was surprised that that Buchla performance didn't sound like burbling farts. That proves that it can be used for something other than funny atonal noises.
