Buchla Music Instruments the Aussie connection

I know we all knew the news but I got a surprise phone call today from Lewis Chiodo that blew my socks off.

Lewis, John Fuller, Danny Olesh are the new owners of Buchhla Electronic Instruments. These guys are Aussies and believe me they understand the needs of customers outside the US , so you can look at local support in Europe, Australia etc in the future!

Michael Marans is the CEO in the US

I have known Lewis for 12 years and believe me this guys LOVES synths/ playing synths since he was age 5.

These guys love Buchla as much as all of us and Lewis also has a great music business background.

Their intention with Buchla Electronic Instruments is to keep the brand as cool as it has been in the past allowing Don to do what he excels at ( creating/ designing).

I have no doubt this will be a brilliant future for our beloved Buchla and Don/ Ezra etc.

Alex Pearson - TWO

The first release for the year is from Canadian, Alex Pearson.

Alex Pearson, a sonorous loner living in the East Coast of Canada who has
been resonating sunken tones and decumbent pitches since 2002. Known for his plunging low-
end destructive sound, mainly created on analogue modular synthesizers, D/A A/D subjacently
weaves high notes and subtle details through his trailing pieces - descending his listeners with a satisfied feeling of ruination.

Along side D/A A/D, Alex creates sound in various projects under numerous synonyms
and runs his label Snapped in Half, specializing in odd sounds for odd people.

Two is a slimy, grimy analog treat! Click on image for link.

RIP Richard Lainhart

We were very happy to be able to release works by Richard. 
Although we never met in person he came across as such a gentleman. 
You will be missed by us, the synth community and all lovers of your music.
Rest in peace Richard.
