About

At the invitation of the Ernst Krenek Institute (Krems, Austria), Karlheinz Essl had the opportunity to work with Ernst Krenek's legendary modular synthesizer BUCHLA 100, built by Don Buchla in 1967 and renovated in 2017.

In the first few days, he focused on a few modules that were used for a couple of live performances that were recorded with an iPhone.
