This month we were privileged to have some unique samples provided by Melbourne based electronic music maestro @Gairaigo aka Gary Franks.

The MG1 was my first real synth, I think I bought it in 1985. Best $100 I ever spent.

The Orac sample is from one of my old tapes from 1986. Year 11 at high school, what a time to be alive. I was way into musique concrete, listening to Karlheinz Stockhausen and Edgard Varese, so I hacked a tape recorder to change speeds and de-activated the erase head so I could record over and over on the same tape, building up sounds and mangling the audio until it disappeared into background noise. I was possibly the biggest nerd in the world… I think this part has some Hohner Chromonica, my parents Yamaha organ, a casio PT80 and maybe some weird sounds off my Commodore 64.
