Allen Strange’s Buchla Easel Manual: a video digest

I’ve always been fascinated and drawn to Allen Strange’s 1974 user’s manual for the Buchla Music Easel.  It is a delightful, thorough and compelling look at the capabilities of this performance instrument.

Over the past few weeks I have methodically gone through the manual in a series of videos  as I discover Allen’s approach and unfolding of the Easel’s mysteries.

This is a short Buchla Blog entry with this link for about an hour’s worth of video demos!
