Bourne Synthesizer Show

Diversiform Matthew Bourne-003 small

The title of this project is a homage to the pioneering work of Annette Peacock and Paul Bley (as The Bley/Peacock Synthesizer Show). The Bourne Synthesizer Show, as its name suggests, is a solo show using only vintage analogue synthesizers – including the legendary Memorymoog analogue synthesizer (as modified by Rudi Linhard’s LAMM modification), with other selected Moog and Korg analogue keyboards. Expect a sonic journey through voltage-controlled circuits, ear-splitting frequencies, passages reminiscent of John Carpenter-esque 80s soundtracks and the unmistakable warmth and bass that only voltage-controlled oscillators can produce.
