Buchla Genres

I've been thinking about the different genres of Buchla music. It seems there is the classic boops and beeps of Morton Subotnick. Then there is the texture candy drones of Alessandro Cortini. I would describe Suzanne Ciani as highly composed New Age. What are some of by the other genres of music you all can think of? And who are some of the people making that specific sound?

I mainly listen to Todd Barton demo patches.

And YouTube Easel sketches.

...

of the styles of people here,

There's dark, which is bad acid trip or creepy and nihilistic (e.g., batchas).

There's rhythmic melodic compositions, minimalist (e.g., oxix52)

There's big ass symphonic compositions (e.g., Lyonel)

There's mad genius experimentation (e.g., Barton, Djangosfire).

There's deep and thoughtful experimentation (e.g., Leo espejo)

And, most importantly, whatever you come up with.

I've seen more than a few "Buchla techno" videos which are usually pretty good. A nice solid beat with atonal FM squelch over the top. Someone posted one recently with a Roland TR-9 as the drum machine, wish I could remember where.

But genres are a bit like Linnaean taxonomy, they change one's understanding of a thing but they don't change the thing itself.

nice thought, but taxonomy did in a round about way lead to the study of genetics....which lead to gene splicing.....which....

I want someone to make a cronenberg buchla now.

Could have been me. I was working on something and a friend dropped by. She told me to record it, so I did. But just for fun etc. I think I saved the "melody" in the MARF though. I'm just learning MARF, but hope to do some proper recordings this autumn.

A quote from an artist whose name I keep forgetting.

Peace and love.

I did one with a TR-909 and my DIY Buchla case a couple of years ago (called it "Nine Buchs" for laughs):

This seems to deserve a nod here. Score one for Buchla midi:

I've been pushing this rhythmic stuff for some time now.

No official releases out but I've got a nice little collection waiting.

To me the Buchla is an instrument/studio in a box that the design of the box takes your hand and leads you into places that you wouldn't necessarily think of as music, that grey area where sound design, music, and uncertainty intersect. maybe more like styles than genres, I feel like the word "genre" limits while styles is open. w00t

I think I wanna get back to making soundtracks for space cowboys. Old track, but here it is.

They are pretty much only good for soda commercials from the 70's.

It's an interesting question, but I don't think any instrument can be labeled strictly with certain genres. I mean, yes it's associated with experimental music. Similarly, the TR-808 is hip-hop and the 909 is techno. But you could ask, "what genre is guitar music?" OK, so a banjo is probably going to be used in folk and country music. At the end of the day, any instrument can be used in countless genres of music.

** WARNING ** Continued use of a Buchla to play beautiful diatonic music in the classical tradition may trigger the instrument's self-destruct mechanism.
