Omniversal Hum & Hope St Radio presents: David Chesworth performs 50 Synthesizer Greats
David Chesworth performs 50 Synthesizer Greats, his 1979 album of ‘delicately patterned, compact and complex compositions’ was originally recorded in his parents’ lounge room, using a monophonic Mini Korg 700 synth and a domestic tape recorder, and released by David himself. 50 Synthesizer Greats is actually 37 minimal synth investigations, full of inquisitive humour and experimental spirit.
Rarely performed live and highly regarded: ‘50 Synthesizer Greats stands up as one of the essential electronic records of Australia’s recorded music history. It’s simple, naïve at times, but more so just a mindful example of the kind of playful audio discoveries that emerging technologies allow for.’ – Lawrence English
Whether ‘complex’ or indeed ‘naïve’ on the ear, this live performance incorporating the original recordings will inevitably become filtered through contemporary technologies and new ways of listening.
Chapter Music DJ’s playing all night.
Food and drinks will be available from Hope St Radio.
