Waveshaper Media – creators of the modular synth documentary I Dream Of Wires – shared this rare interview with Serge Tcherepnin, creator of the Serge modular synthesizer.
Here’s what they have to say about the video:
Interviews with Serge are few and far between – in fact we’re only aware of one print interview, from the early ’80s. As far as we know, this is the only filmed interview with Serge in existence.
Serge was a friend and colleague of Morton Subotnick’s; Mort is the one who hired Serge onto the staff at CalArts, where he developed his synthesizer system for students to build and use.
We met Serge in Paris to film with Mort for our upcoming Subotnick documentary, and after much convincing, Serge finally agreed to also give us a solo interview for Waveshaper TV!
