I Dream of Wires

Post by EarlJemmings » Thu Aug 08, 2013 7:02 am

So- yesterday I swung by and picked up my copy of IDOW hardcore edition blu ray :hyper:
And guys
guys

It's well worth the wait

The first part covers the beginnings of synths briefly,
including even the humble electric sackbut (which I had never heard of)
and the beginning and evolution of the modular synth.

Second part goes on to talk about resurgence, modern formats, a bit on the diy scene, interviews with band members,
with wigglers and even has a small chunk on muffwiggler.com :tu:

Talking about eurorack, it brought up the interesting point on panel design
that a chunk of euro manufacturers were originally in stompboxes
maybe obvious, but something I hadn't considered. I think it also says something of the functionality and form therein as well.
How euro was an escape from the conservative nature of guitarists :goo:
and more and more and more

Anyway, It is well worth the wait, interviews were very professional
Video looks great, soundtrack is fun and weird
Came with a button, some stickers, and nicely printed pictures from the modular picture of the week contest.
So far I have really enjoyed it, not quite finished yet though, wasn't able to watch the whole thing last night, got too late :ripbanana:

I also picked up a shirt while I was there. And lemme tell you.
It is comfy, and stylish.

So good work guys, it's beautiful, and I have learned a lot so far, and my fuck is it inspiring.
And sorry I become a socially inept blob when talking to people, I wish I could have brought myself to talk to you more.

Wiggle on!

Yeah, sorry, but pretty much this. I considered putting it in the IDOW section
but I feel that is more for their official announcements then my yammering. :despair:

If any mods feel like swooping it away to it's proper place, I am in your power :hail:

You can also subscribe to the subforums and get notifications of new threads then which is what I did with the IDOW section and the sections of the manufacturers I'm interested in.
