Meeting a legend...

yesterday I went to the John Carpenter Anthology concert in Utrecht – apart from getting a cool bag and autographed poster I got a picture with him too!  if you should not be familiar with him check out his groundbreaking haunting minimal synthwave 1976 Assault On precinct 13 theme – one of the most important pieces of music from the 1970s (he also directed the movie itself ofcourse ;p ) . Read more about this soundtrack on the wikipedia page here

Swiss Synthesizer Museum Kickstarter Goal Reached!!!

wooohooo the SMEM Swiss Museum for synthesizers and electronic instruments kickstarter goal has been reached! This means they can expand the museum by building the playroom studio so everyone can access the instruments without them gathering dust tucked away in storage bunker. A triumph for cultural artistic and intellectual achievement – this place will turn into a rebel base for enlightenment in these sinister and evil times, like a monastery in the dark ages. There is still about 24 hours left until the kickstarter ends so if you haven’t participated yet -> LET’S DO IT! Also your only chance to obtain the Legowelt vinyl LP album that I will record there, or if you want to use one of the 1000’s of electronic instruments from their collection – from Mellotrons to rare analog synths to weird prototype exotic digital racks to over the top 1970s space organs – like the Yamaha EX1 in the picture above – and if they make a bit more money they will include a library with all sorts of books concerning electronic instruments and music!

Here is a little movie from some organ channel where they transport the GALAXIS instrument to Fribourg and Klemens Niklaus Trenkle the founder of the SMEM shows a guy around who seems to come straight out of Aus Der Reihe Derrick:

Swiss Museum For Synths Kickstarter 5 Days Left

Did you know that every time some dumb wanker buys a useless vulgar Louis Vuiton bag for his girlfriend (or viceversa) a 1000 innocent puppies and kittens die – their noses cut off and tanned into just the right material for the bags!?! The kickstarter of the SMEM Swiss museum for electronic instruments is hardly the price of a few of these bags away from achieving its goal -> worldwide salvation from the waves of these symbols of self indulged ignorance by means of sonic disobedience! Save thousands of innocent puppies and kittens by supporting this kickstarter – money spent on this kickstarter is saved from being spent on those inutile evil bags!

Above a photo of the WERSI GALAXIS 1977 space organ, one of the exotic pieces in their collection. They still got 5 days left on their kickstarter – help these friendly Swiss freaks out with building the museum and the playroom so the collection will be accessible for the public.
They are hardworking volunteers that spend their precious spare time maintaining and cataloging these unique machines. There are lots of rewards if you participate – one of them is a Legowelt vinyl LP that I will record pro bono using the SMEM collection – it will be available only as reward in this kickstarter campaign not in any stores – so your only change of getting this record is to participate in the kickstarter!

The world needs this sanctuary of enlightenment in these dark and evil times! Spend your money on something that will spread intellectual achievement and endless amount of fun and sounds instead of pointless Louis Vuiton bags!!! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/smem/the-playroom-an-interactive-synthesizer-space
