Alessandro Cortini and his Buchla Music Easel. Excerpt of a live improvisation on Nanny Cantaloupe’s Glossolalia program, 3/20/13 on KXLU 88.9 FM in Los Angeles.
This colorful video features sound artist Charles Cohen improvising on a 1970′s Buchla Music Easel. This extremely rare instrument is one of Don Buchla’s 200 series. Buchla (a pioneer of audio synthesis) only manufactured 14 of these units. The entire film was edited from an hour-long set of free improvisation, with audio was taken directly from Charles’ mixing board.
At this time the film is only available online. While you can stream it in HD, it is best viewed on DVD.
Please contact the filmmaker for hard copies if interested.
