First Thomas Ankersmit's exciting new full length composition on Touch and now the completely different David Chesworth re-issue, recorded on La Trobe University's early Serge:

Thanks for the news. I will add to my Serge cd collection.

I love Ankersmit's stuff

It would be good to have a list of albums produced using serge as the main or most prominent instrument. Until someone puts that together, any crucial releases come to mind?

This release has been in constant rotation recently, Can't recommend it enough.

Absolutely this. So cool/odd. This Ned Lagin has been on rotation here lately too and certainly feels pretty sergey

^ Seastones uses EML. Emu modular, Buchla, ARP 2500 and Odyssey and some early computer system. Dude had a nice stash of synths.

The Serge Musicians Tape from 1983 is fantastic, as I'm sure most of you know. There was a very brief discussion on it here:

https://www.muffwiggler.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=132466&sid=14a370b7d ccc7601943b14cdebb4a9ea

One of my personal favorite uses of the Serge is soundtrack to this great piece of video art. Soundtrack by Stephan Wittwer:

Talking of Serge records there are the formalist/demonstration explorations of single systems as tracks by Benge and Keith Fullerton Whitman:

Recently I've been enjoying Peder Mannerfelt and noticed that alongside some EMS and an MPC60 he uses a panel of Serge as can be seen in this interview:

I have been really enojoying the recently released Bob Ostertag plays the Serge too.

Thanks for the tip! Pre-ordered. I noticed some of the tracks are streamable on Bandcamp (where you can pre-order) and are also available on Spotify.

Is there a dedicated thread for discussing and recommending records that feature Serge systems?
johnnywoods
Apologies if self-promotion is a no-no here, but my most recent album came out on spotify this week. It's all serge, with a bit of korg karma:

would love to hear it Johnny! Is there any way of hearing it without using spotify?

If I may mention my Tone Science (DiN49) album - 5 tracks of modular self playing soundscapes which has at it's core my 6 panel Serge system bolstered by Eurorack & Roland 100M.

I've been following your work for years Ian! So cool to see you here. Can't wait to check this one out.
theboddy
Thanks Johnny Woods.

You'll probably find that one very different to my "normal" output.

I've been mega busy the past couple of years with life stuff n work so I should really start posting some more patches up here. The Serge always finds a way of sneaking into my professional work. Nothing else quite sounds like it.
