    Sorry, that’s a BC8, not a BC16. I hadn’t read his notes on vimeo yet.

    A Radiophonic Workshop tribute is incomplete without a green lampshade.

    Do you wear eyeliner and a Polish railway-worker’s cap?

    Unfortunately I don’t know nuch about the Radiophonic Workshop, but I do know that I like my droning a little more controlled. While I do like some Throbbing Gristle, this didn’t do much for me. He had little control over every sound being made, and most of it was just loops.

    Pedal pandemonium: Poor man’s analog synth, essentially.

    DARN, I miss my Arp 2600.

    That was very very cool, pure electronic orgy, very clean. TG and BBC Radiophonic… album + DVD please!

    That was really beautiful, and what a great looking rig he’s got.

    Even more, it sounded just like the old BBC Radiophonic stuff. I guess I’m most impressed by his keen awareness of genre, even in something as anti-generic as weird, cobbled-together bits of electronic noise. I’d say he nailed it.

    Well, I don’t know Chris Carter or his band from a hole in a ground, but BBC Radiophic Workshop is awsome, so at least he’s doing a cool tribute.

    Normally when I see someone with a score of effects pedals ready to go, they’re most often about to attempt to rupture my eardrums with a wall of harsh noise. This is very refreshing. Plus, the Chimera BC16 is a groovy little synthesizer (that’s the little round thing sitting in the middle of the board).
    Thanks BB, and thank you Mr. Carter.
