A 1975 recording of a party to introduce one of Don Buchla’s synthesizers, the Buchla 500 (Electric Music Box). This program begins with the sounds of Buchla and others preparing the instrument for presentation while also describing its features to interested people who are milling around the studio. Then a composition entitled “Terminal References” is performed, followed by additional music that plays in the background as the party continues, and ending with the performance of a long electronic piece.

Don Buchla passed away on September 16, 2016.
