To celebrate Brazilian singer and composer Caetano Veloso’s 70th birthday, Beck contributed a cover of “Michelangelo Antonioni” to the album A Tribute to Caetano Veloso. The full album is out now on iTunes.
Beck band and record club regular Brian Lebarton will be putting on a synth class in September in Marfa, Texas.
Synth Class is a free community workshop on the origins, cultures and genres that have culminated around the synthesizer over the last 60 years. Classes will be a combination of performance, history and basic knowledge on the fundamentals of sound creation. There will also be a mini “Synth Class Record Bin” with select LP’s for sale, group projects, camera projections, alternative recording and sound design techniques and introductions to looping and sampling. ALL AGES, previous musical or synthesizer experience not required. To sign up visit marfasynth.com and for those that cannot attend in person online summaries will be posted after every class. Come find out why the synthesizer is the impetus for our space-age rebellion!
