On the 21th of November, a TED article was published about a newly launched SynthKit. This kit was born from a collaboration between Ayah Bdeir’s littleBits electronic building block company, Reggie Watts and world-renowned synthmasters KORG. When they gave the kit to world famous musician Brian Eno, he commented on it as “This will be the birth of a new kind of music”.
For us this is really stimulating as it indicates that DIY synthesizer kits are still hot among many people. Also it shows that new synthesizers can still be a contribution to an already very diverse electronic music culture.
