Moroder plays with his Vocoder.

Because I don’t have a whole lot of awesome to talk about right now, here’s a pretty killer video of Giorgio Moroder playing with his Vocoder. Please note the mustache.

Enjoy!

Dr. Samuel Hoffman on the theremin

It’s the middle of the night (00:37) and I am watching vintage videos of vintage synthesizers being played by vintage synthesists. What are you doing, huh?

You might know Dr. Samuel Hoffman from his exotica records of Les Baxter. Wait, you don’t? What about the record he did with Billy May? Not that either? Wow.

How about a demo track or two, huh?

Pretty great, right?
