Everything you wanted to know about synthesizer but were afraid to ask! Thank you to the Seagram Synth Ensemble – James Reesor, James Dowbiggen and Dave Klassen whose No Moving Air album has provided many hours of listening enjoyment. Thanks also to Robert Daniels from Visions In Sound for cohosting tonight! And of course, special surprise guest Dr. Kathryn who had some comments and questions of her own.
Topics tackled tonight:
- Starting out as students
- Synths, maintenance, analog vs. digital, and more
- The next gig (July 15 at TheMuseum in Kitchener)
- Favourite players and influences
- Formats such as tape and vinyl
- Why No Moving Air was never released on CD
- Who their favourite professor at school was and why
- Top 3 science fiction films
- And of course, their new single “Ephem”
“Ephem” is unique as a single, as it comes in a brand new format. It is a piece of art and a statement about the way we consume music today.
This was a fascinating interview for me and I hope you give it a watch.
