Austrian-bred producer, composer and musician Patrick Pulsinger. He is a really awesome nerd when it comes to modular synthesizers. Here, he demonstrates patching his bespoke modular synth at the 2013 Red Bull Music Academy in New York. Watch how rapt the room full of people are in his explanations.
A quick History lesson about the Modular Synth:
The earliest commercial modular synthesizers were developed, in parallel, by R.A. Moog Co., and Buchla in 1963. The synthesizer both broadened the spectrum, and greatly eased the creation of electronic music, which before was made via tape splicing, use of primitive electronic oscillators, and earlier electronic or electromechanical instruments. In 1976, the Japanese company Roland came out with the Roland System 100.
