Buchla Thunder and 2 PerFourMers

Buchla Thunder and 2 PerFourMers (upside up horizontal version) from Katavist

I love that on the Buchla site they say the following statement about their Thunder product, “Making no attempt to emulate the appearance or playing techniques of existing acoustic instruments…”. Hell yeah! The Thunder is straight out of the set of Star Trek the Next Generation. The underrated Vermona PerFourMers synths are a nice match. Shall we say PerEightMer?

“16 improvisations using the Buchla Thunder MIDI-Controller on two Vermona PerFourMers. In the sixth piece (from 7:01) the Thunder plays seven internal sequences (“riffs”) I had recorded beforehand. They can be scaled in real time, which I didn’t do here though.” – Katavist

  1. I just uploaded a live performance of a piece of mine that used a Thunder. The piece was written in 1998 and this performance is from 2001. Enjoy!
