In the first days of 1984, I started at, what was to be, my third and final high school in as many years. Circumstance had led me to make and remake friends more often than most kids, at what is normally a difficult time to do such a thing. And, because of this, I often […]

At least once a year, I apologise for a lack of activity and here’s the first such apology for 2013! Last year I took on a new day job and things have ramped up of late, the upshot of which has seen me flying here, there and everywhere. America, Europe, Africa and the Middle East. […]

UVI IRCAM Prepared Piano Review

5

I suppose it has to be said that the piano is a bit of a one trick pony. I mean, it has one sound set whose sounds can only be affected by the velocity with which you strike the keys, and the level of sustain you apply using the pedals. Maybe opening the lid has […]

UVI The Beast Review

2

I think it’s fair to say that, of all the digital, sampling behemoths of the late 70s and early 80s, the New England Digital Synclavier was probably the biggest, most expensive, most desirable of all.
