So many synths, so little time......

Loved hanging out with Hiro Iida at Strange Cranium Productions, Inc. in New York, New York today with Dina Pearlman, daughter of famed synthesizer inventor Alan R. Pearlman (ARP). So great to hear how musicians continue to use these vintage instruments in contemporary musical settings. #StrangeCranium #Moog #ARP #Synths

Billy Jay Stein's New York City Keyboard Collection

If there's a keyboard you've lusted after, it probably resides in the New York City studio of Grammy-winning keyboardist and producer Billy Jay Stein. His Strange Cranium/Strike Audio facility in downtown Manhattan features a museum-worthy collection of custom-MIDI'd gear including a Yamaha CS-80, an Elka Synthex, the ARP 2600 used on Stevie Wonder's "I Wish" and a chopped Hammond B3 organ purchased from a funeral home (and still on its original coffin cart)! Watch the video to see Billy's keyboard collection in action!

Ready for anything. When you’re a music house maintaining a four-room studio in the heart of Manhattan, occupying a narrow niche is not an option. Hence the military mindset evoked by the name Strike Audio, a facility like none other in NYC – and quite possibly the world – that’s poised to make just...

"Into The Universe"- The lead single from a forthcoming full length album called "Face of God" is out today through Lab78! This album is a collaborative record I made with my friend Nick Littlemore and Strange Cranium Productions, Inc. and it's very special to me. https://lab78.lnk.to/PSFaceOfGod Original animation by Ivan Dixon
WONDERBLOOM Collaborators, Episode 9: Jason Lindner With the “True Minds” music video coming out tomorrow (!?!) I’d like to celebrate the feral genius of Jason Lindner who played an integral part in this song coming together. “True Minds” was always a wild card on WONDERBLOOM, but ended up being one of my favorite songs on the album to listen to. Nic Hard and I enjoyed the heck out of crafting the arrangement, but were particular about collaborators given the multiple genre personalities that span the wildly different sections of the song. I’ve been a fan of Jason Lindner’s music for a long time, particularly the openness, patience, and imagination with which he approaches sound and texture. Every collaborator day during the process of making WONDERBLOOM was a special treat, but Strange Cranium Productions, Inc. day with Jason Lindner was one I’ll never forget. Strange Cranium is a recording studio in Manhattan, with one of the largest collections of unique and vintage keyboards and gear in the world. Billy Jay Stein (Founder) has collected keyboards and synth models that line the walls from floor to ceiling and span 5+ decades of musical styles, all wired and ready to ride. Who better to bring to Strange Cranium than synth wizard-master himself Jason Lindner? We tracked Jason on “You Didn’t Know”, “Low on Love”, and “True Minds”. I learned that day that there is no soundscape Jason can’t find his way through, and that we share an aversion to air blowing on our heads while we are playing music. 💨💨💨 Jason is working on a new record with his band NOW VS NOW & to see what else he’s up to and tune into beautiful solo electronic performances, follow him at JASON LINDNER #WONDERBLOOMcollaborators #makingof #StrangeCraniumStudios #inthestudio #synthesizers #synths #jasonlindner #WONDERBLOOMtheAlbum Strange Cranium Recordings GroundUP Music Polyarts Moog Synthesizers CORE PORT,inc.
(SOUND ON!) 3 more days ’til WONDERBLOOM! Nothing can stop this music from coming out on 3.20.20. • 🌸 This clip is from a song on WONDERBLOOM called “True Minds”, my setting of Shakespeare’s Sonnet 116. It features Jason Lindner on synths (recorded in the synth wonder-world that is Strange Cranium Productions, Inc. ), Laura Perrudin on harp & effects, Nathan Schram on one-man symphony, and Jordan Perlson on drums. Nic Hard and I had an awesome time creating live manipulations of Jordan’s drums while he tracked on this one. • 🌺 Another fun fact about this song: Jochen Rueckert (Wolff Parkinson White) has a version of this same song on his new album “Favours” which he calls “Mitred Sun” (an anagram of “true minds"). It’s the same vocal performance on the verses, but you might not recognize it because the vibe is sooooo different. While I was doing the vocal setting to send to Jochen for his record, I went kind of nuts demoing arranging ideas around it (as I do) and decided to put the song on my record too. • 🌼 Jochen and I set out upon an #exquisiteco**se co**se style adventure, where we worked on our different versions without hearing the other person’s and then listen to them at the very end once we were completely finished. There’s really no describing how strange and beautiful it was to hear someone else’s treatment/understanding of a vocal performance that I had been listening to in a different way for 8 months! Very cool writing exercise, I highly recommend it. •🌷 This photo was taken by David Goddard Photography and manipulated by Gabriel Gerardo Calderón . #WONDERBLOOMtheAlbum comes out Friday on GroundUP Music.
