Favorite track: Can't Vote For Yourself v1.
Traditional Synthesizer Music is a collection of songs created and performed live exclusively on the modular synthesizer by Aaron Funk. Each sound contained within was created purely with the modular synthesizer. No overdubbing or editing techniques were utilized in the recordings on Traditional Synthesizer Music. Each song was approached from the ground up and dismantled upon the completion of it's recording. The goal was to develop songs with interchangeable structures and sub structures, yet musically pleasing motifs. Many techniques were incorporated to "humanize" or vary the rhythmic results within these sub structures. An exercise in constructing surprises, patches interrupting each other to create unforeseen progressions. Multiple takes were recorded for each song resulting in vastly different versions of each piece.

Incredible album from start to finish. Stumbled on a live video of ''sick face'' on youtube and instantly wanted to buy this record. I hadn't felt such a sense of urgency towards buying an electronic record since my early 00's high school days when I first discovered Aphex Twin & Boards of Canada.
This album sits nicely between the two of them but definitely holds its own and is jam packed with some of the most amazing electronic music i've ever heard.
