Shoreditch Underpass

For some reason I have never posted this clip from the BBC program about synth-pop called Synth Britannia, featuring John Foxx. What makes this clip so great is that it was shot in my studio! That track he's playing along with is the first thing we ever did together - this is the day I first met him

Entropical Paradise

Just discovered this over on the Root Blog, a triple album of pure Moog and Buchla modular sounds, now sadly long out of print. Its by Douglas Leedy, an experimental composer who helped set up the electronic music studio at Berkley University in LA in the late 60s. The album is extremely minimal and drawn out and in fact he doesn't describe this as music but as 'six sonic environments' that you hear, but don't necessarily listen to. The full album is over two hours long, and I highly recommend it, but for those in a bit of a rush, here is a little edit I made to get the flavor:
