CHARLES COHEN AT THE BUCHLA MUSIC EASEL from ALEX on Vimeo.



found this on create digital music ( probably on matrixsynth too ) though I'd share - never seen a bucla in detailed action. I understand its a module in a suitcase with a keyboard atached

I'm fascinated by the programmer card ( which by todays technology is a bit silly ) in which presets could be made by plugging resistors into a pre-set pcb - how do you think this works ? I understand how he connects it to the switches that would be pretty easy , how is it done with the pots!

the keyboard in interesting too, it has a lot of parts! I like the bit in the video it sparks.

The choice of colours are amazing too , wish I had access to a breadth of coloured parts like that!

I think the card fits well with the modular and circuit bending mindset. You're not really limited to just having presets there. I've seen cards with active circuitry attached.

The manual can still be found online, I think. I wouldn't be surprised if the schemos were floating around too.

yes, thanks very much for posting this!

there are a couple of sound clips from Cohen's record with Ed Wilcox, "Those are pearls that were his eyes" on Ruby Red's home page:
