  1. 88 and still up for a small show, hats off to you sir!
    Master Synthesist how must I twist my buttons to get the Master Synthesist title?

  2. One way to win the title is to have worked on “Apocalypse Now” and have released an excellent modular reworking of “The Planets” by Holst. Patrick’s version is an intriguing comparison piece with Tomita’s, both being top-notch. He used an E-mu modular where Tomita used a Moog, so there’s a clear tonal difference. Then there’s that seal of approval from Herbie.
