Fresh Old Sounds

December 29, 2010 | By | No Comments

I love learning new things.  It’s common for me to suddenly become interested in a particular topic and just fall down the rabbit hole, reading, watching and listening to everything I can about it.

Lately, I’ve been reading up on the history of electronic music.  More specifically, I’ve been learning a lot more about synthesizers and rhythm machines of the 1970s & 1980s.  Since I grew up playing a LOT of classical piano, I largely ignored these synths and drum machines the first time around. Admittedly, some of the music from the era sounds a bit dated, but at the time it was something very new.  (I would be a bad li’l blogger if I didn’t give a tip of the hat to the amazing synth-oriented blog at Matrixsynth. They have really helped me get all learned up goodly.)

I now have a greater appreciation of the experimentation going on at the time.  As a result, I’m playing around with a lot of the sounds and will be posting some new stuff soon.  

I can only hope it won’t all sound like this:

I’m also trying to figure out a way to purchase THIS thing and sneak it into the house without waking the baby and/or ending the marriage.  I’m sure it’ll be fine.
