Produced & Directed by Alex Tyson. A film featuring 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 film was edited from over an hour of free improvisation, with audio taken directly from Charles' mixing board.
a little riff coming from the Buchlas. the 291e is sequencing along with the 250e. 7 steps against 5. the 144 is modulating the 291e filter , the 158 is the the sound you hear. the touch plate is changing the pitch of the 158. enjoy.
