Thorne dealing with Serge

Mike Thorne at the Serge Modular synthesizer

Working at the Serge Modular synthesizer, March 1999

Originally designed and built by Serge Tcherepnin and crew at his home/factory on Haight Street in San Francisco. The best synthesizer sounds in the house are mounted on the wall at the Stereo Society.

There are no presets, and MIDI control was a late add-on. You always start connecting modules with an idea of where you want to be, but it always seems to go somewhere you didn't expect. But that place always seems worth visiting.
