Playlist – January 26, 2018

What a beautiful evening.  We had a wonderful time immersing ourselves in the music of Janne Hanhisuanto.  A truly stunning and remarkably diverse set of music, one of my favorite recent programs.

One fascinating factoid – Synastasia was made using SYNA, a hand-built synthesizer of Janne’s own design.  In his own words:

SYNA is a 3 year project which ended last autumn.  Some 200 meters of wire are inside, along with 169 knobs and pots.  I wanted to have controls, you know oscillator type, filters, right at hand without menu diving.  Ninety five percent of the components are resistors, capacitors and op amps.  It is a thesis work.

Here’s a video of Janne demonstrating SYNA:


And here is tonight’s playlist.  Hope to see you next week!
