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.
