It’s fascinating to see the song presets laid out using tape and shapes — a nice little system in a pre-digital preset world!
This makes me so happy for a number of reasons:
- Tina is a legend and is one of my all-time biggest inspirations
- I happen to own this synthesizer. My childhood friend bought one at a small shop in our small hometown years ago, and sold it to me since he knew I’d put it to good use. He was right.
- We may be playing several Talking Heads songs at Frostapalooza on August 17th, so owning this instrument + seeing the exact presets has me super excited.
I decided to post this because this was found on Facebook, and that stuff tends to get sucked into the ether. But it also looks like Talking Heads shared a similar photo on their official Instagram page.
