SYNTHPOSIUM

Wendy Carlos, synth pioneer

This coming Tuesday (August 2) on Easy Sonic Living:

“Synthposium” is a bi-weekly meeting in which Les and Lara challenge each other to learn more about music involving synthesizers.  They like thinking about popular (and unpopular!) music critically, drawing connections between trends in sound and style, learning about electronic music around the world and its evolution over time.  Examples of past challenges include: research the solo careers of artists from synth bands, copyright infringement cases, one hit wonders and another song from their catalogue, synth music from Brazil, trace the origin of a sample, research the career of a producer etc.  Past playlists and commentaries (plus bonus bon-bons from the internet) can be found here: http://synthposium.tumblr.com
