Not what a synthesizer can do, but what a man can do with a synthesizer.

There’s a chance that Gold Coast Recorders will soon have a Crumar DS-2 in our synth collection/pile;  researching this Italo-Moog turned up the absolute best instrument-demonstration video that I have ever seen on youtube.   As Polish creator WC Olo Garb states, his (?) mission is to “show() you not what a synthesizer can do, but what a man can do with a synthesizer.”    For instance:

All in all, the video provides some of the best video-treatment analogies-to-sonic-effects that I’ve ever seen.  The filtering, jump cuts, found footage, multiple flavors of distressing, even the wardrobe choice are all incredibly incisive.  Even with the sound turned off I think you could get a sense of the Crumar DS-2.  Well worth all 11 minutes of your Thursday.
