Buchla The Music Easel

Charles Cohen at the Buchla Music Easel

Text from the video :
  • This colorful video features sound artist Charles Cohen improvising on a 1970's Buchla Music Easel. This extremely rare instrument is one of Don Buchla's 200 series. Buchla (a pioneer of audio synthesis) only manufactured 14 of these units. The entire film was edited from an hour-long set of free improvisation, with audio was taken directly from Charles' mixing board.

    All of the photography and editing was produced by Alex Tyson, a sound and video artist from Pennsylvania. The film was shot in 16:9 720p High Definition format, using the Letus35 Extreme and a 35mm LensBaby 3GPL. This film is free to distribute, share, blog, vlog, etc. When re-posting, please copy and paste this text to inform anyone about the film. Also.. please 'bling out' the embed size to 640x360.

    At this time the film is only available online. While you can stream it in HD, it is best viewed on DVD.
    Please contact the filmmaker for hard copies if interested.
