The historic Buchla 100 series modular synthesizer was built by Don Buchla in California in early 1960s. An instrument intended for electronic music performance that together with the Moog Modular is one of the most important synthesizers in the history of electronic music. One of the few still fully functional Buchla 100 Synthesizer can be found at the Ernst Krenek Institut in Krems, Austria. During an artist-in residency program, Mario Verandi explored the endless sound possibilities of this rare and extraordinary instrument. The result is his Eight Pieces for the Buchla 100 Series, a journey into experimental minimal electronic music. Mario Verandi is an Argentinean-born composer, musician and producer living in Berlin. With an extensive artistic career, Mario Verandis works are wide-ranging and include electroacoustic and experimental music, music in modern classical and ambient style, live electronic performances as well as sound installations and music for dance, radio and theater. He has also collaborated with several musicians and visual artists. He has performed in several prestigious European festivals including Märzmusik (Berlin), Multiphonies GRM (Paris) and Donaueschinger Musiktage. His works have been awarded in the Prix Ars Electronica Awards (Linz), European Bell Days Composition Prize (ZKM, Karlsruhe), Bourges Electroacoustic Music Competition (France), Stockholm Electronic Art Awards (Sweden) and is included in the Essex Collection of Latin American Art.
