A childhhod memory

Looking at my Moog Voyager, I just saw the world through my younger self aged 12, looking at the Moog with all the knobs was like being able to create a universe in sound, anything was possible , imagination unboxed.
I think we forget at times that a synth doesnt have to play bass, strings etc.

LinkAnother hidden treasure, this time from 2001.

Zen and the art of….could well be the sounds of the last day on earth.

A world of space, destruction, chaos and beauty. Broken/fractured drum machine against a dark horizon of synthesis, pre dsp mangling etc.

A future classic.
