about

This album is dedicated to all DIY electronic instrument builders. If you know the basic components of electronics, have a lot of patience and meticulousness then you can build legendary electronic instruments for yourself with a fraction of the original instrument's prices. The clones are based on the original circuit schematics, maybe with some additional features. The sound of these clones is as close as possible to the originals. The components are new so the instruments respond to originals as they went from assembly lines to the musicians in the 70's and 80's. Album showcases three of my DIY instruments. The songs "Tail Chasing" and "Touch Of Zen" are made with Electronic Music Box (EMB), which is not a direct clone of any synth but has features from Buchla and Moog instruments. "Letter To Kid Baltan" is composed completely with TTSH-2600 synthesizer, which in turn is a clone of the famous ARP 2600 synth. The song is named after Dutch Dick Raaijmakers, who composed electronic music in Philips Eindhoven's NatLab studio in the 60s and 70s as Kid Baltan (Dik Natlab in reverse order). In the same studio, Edgard Varese's "Poeme Electronique" was composed for the 1958 world exhibition in Brussels. As a historical curiosity, Stanley Kubrick inquired about whether the Raaijmakers were interested in making electronic music for his Space Odyssey 2001 movie. Raaijmakers politely refused and continued his career in the Netherlands with other projects. Song’s "Worlds Within Worlds", "Flight Of The Bumblebee", "Two Poems" and "Almuchabala" represent my Moog Prodigy synthesizer clone. I'm playing the Prodigy with Akai EWI wind controller and with an external sequencer. The song "Almuchabala" is made only with Prodigy synth. The song has been recorded as a single take using a digital audio looper as a tape-looper.
