Str8 Sounds "Buchla in the Never World"

Str8 Sounds "Buchla in the Never World" -- one of my most outlandish but interesting audio projects, a  performance of September 21, 2010 (78 minutes 02 seconds).

Part One --

Part Two --

"Buchla in the Never World" consists of 6 YouTube video channels of old synthesizer and musical instrument demonstrations playing simultaneously, whilst modulating their volumes up and down, and changing the videos continuously, for an ever-changing but randomly coherent sonic flow.

Reminiscent of Stereolab, Iannis Xenakis, Morton Subotnick, Messiaen, Merzbow, Tangerine Dream, The Residents, Kraftwerk, and The Orb combined in a swirling circus of electronic vibrations.

This methodology is done seamlessly, dreamfully, softly assertive, then pools into mild milieu of placid plasticity, whilst almost slipping indiscretely into ionic segues and interplasmic micro-sequences.

Perhaps the most strangely beautiful music I've ever orchestrated.
