This video preview for Bolero Electronica was presented by Amin Bhatia at the 2010 NAMM Show as part of a great presentation put on by The Moog Foundation. We’ll have more on this later!

Thanks for asking about the synths used Amin Bhatia in Bolero Electronica. Yes, seventy-five years of technology represented in over 100 pieces of gear – that’s a lot of tweaking!

Here’s a two-minute video reduction of the full length version with music accompanied by text to give you an idea of what you’re hearing. For a closer look you should refer to the ‘Virtuality’ CD booklet which contains a full chart for Bolero Electronica as well a stanza by stanza guide written by synth historian Mark Vail.

If you don’t have the booklet yet, you can get more info from aminbhatia.com.

  1. Thanks to Amin Bhatia for a travel through time.

    I have been working on a similar project for a year. Can you imagine, that I never new about Bolero Electronica. Perhaps that is good, because otherwise you would have scared me away!
