Thank you for sharing this! I've been going through the recordings and I really dig the last few minutes of Pictures of an Exhibition.

I hope the Easel goes to a good home.

Funny story... none of his kids have any idea who did his wikipedia entry, but I'm glad someone knew enough and took the time to lay it out.

A truly wonderful post - thanks so much for sharing these pictures of your father's 208 along with this incredible story. His music is so inspiring to me. To hear these Buchla sounds for the first time - its just such a treat. In fact I have made an edit of all the purely electronic sections of the music you provided, and it is 70 minutes of bliss!

Also it is very interesting to see the pictures of the original catalog you took - I've never seen that one before. I have tried to edit them all into PDF version of the brochure for my own collection... :banana:

Amazing thread....

Thank you for posting - what artifacts! Fascinating....

The fact people alerted trihell on CL as to the true value of the easel makes me think there's hope for humankind yet....

Sorry, I moved right after I'd shared all this on the forum and hadn't checked back in until now.

Here's a more permanent solution in using google drive for the files. Thank you to Triglav for re-upping and jtregoat for offering to PM them.
