What once started out in laboratories of scientists and nerds, with the goal to mimic the sound of instruments, soon become an indispensable asset to the music industry: The synthesizer. Therefore our fifth clip is dedicated to this ground breaking, technological invention.
Using the appropriate emulators we composed an engineering hymn specifically for this clip. The visuals were created by reconstructing the original synthesizers (Minimoog, Roland-TR 808, Roland SH-101, Akai MPC2000XL) using the individual components of an iPhone 6 and a Nexus 5, which were in turn animated frame by frame. The sheet highlights display the actual operated controllers and buttons. Enjoy!
