Unterstand modular synthesis with PATCH & TWEAK, the upcoming book from the team of PUSH TURN MOVE!
On the 1st of May Kim Bjørn presented his second book for Synthesizer enthusiasts. After PUSH TURN MOVE‘s focus on the interface of hardware/software music products, PATCH & TWEAK is all about the world of modular Synthesizers. It’s made in collaboration with Chris Meyer from Learning Modular and covers a wide range of topics for everyone.
From beginner tips, in depth explications about specific functions, interviews with best-known artists (Collin Benders, Hans Zimmer, Richard Devices or Suzanne Ciani) or even special created video content. This book covers everything you need to know about modular synthesis.
On this year’s Superbooth in Berlin, the team gives visitors a little preview what you can find inside the book. I took advantage of the presence of those responsible and interviewed Kim Bjørn and Chris Meyer about PATCH & TWEAK.
