At the 2019 NAMM Show, Yamaha filmed a series of interviews, as part of their event livestream.
This interview features electrical engineer and musician Don Lewis and FM synthesis pioneer Dr. John Chowning. Host Blake Angelo talks with them about their personal experiences with synthesis, their work and a little about the current state of synthesis.
Highlight: Lewis improvises a song about how much he loves Yamaha’s FM piano patch, which can transform from a realistic piano emulation, to electric piano, to something completely out there.
