Wendy Carlos was the first to rework the music of Johann Sebastian Bach for the synthesizer, but by no means the last. This week we cover the outstanding Bach to Moog by master Craig Leon, so expect a truckload of great modern classical music.
For the next two hours expect also synth melters by Pink Floyd, Surma, Clark and a new behemoth of an album by vaporwaver Nmesh.

MODULAR #13

A edição número 13 do Modular está online e temos duas horas bem especiais para quem aprecia a sua música sintetizada. Na primeira hora recordamos uma das melhores trilhas sonoras para um filme de horror desde os grandes tempos dos 80 – A Girl Walks Alone At Night – (atenção à fenomenal Dancing Girls de Farah) e conhecemos um dos santo graal da new wave grega dos 80, a perturbante Shadow of Blood por Lena Platonos.

Na segunda hora recomendamos um novo projeto português de nome FALHA HUMANA e a mui intima Dança Menina, seguida de relaxamento absoluto com um especial de musica modular/sintetizador criada e tocada para plantas. Começamos com o genial Mort Garson e o seu Plantasia e desbravamos por Roger Roger e Jöel Fajerman entre outros, para terminar a viagem no album ao vivo de Lolina, ou Inga Copeland.
