Introducing the Buchla Music Easel Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 103 min Event Type: Other Finds Program Origin: KPFA A 1975 recording of a party to introduce one of Don Buchla’s synthesizers, probably the Music Easel.

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. As described by Buchla: “The Music Easel contains many of the elements commonly used to generate and process sound: a keyboard, sequencer, pulser, preamplifier, envelope detector and balanced modulator; oscillators, gates, envelope generators and filters; facilities for mixing, monitoring and reverberating. The connectives are as important as the elements to be connected. Interconnection with...

Rush’s clear and concise explanation of his schema serve as an excellent primer for those very same modern compositional techniques. The role of chance, of the influence of individual performers, the implications for teaching future musicians, and the possibility for popular success for such new music is all roundly discussed in this intere...
