CIBO: ROASTED RED PEPPERS


Yes,  this what they look like before their Phoenix-like resurrection to tastiness. Keep in mind that cleaning the roasted peppers is much easier than cleaning your burner top, but the aroma of those charring peppers is heavenly.

CIBO: SALSA AGLI ASPARIGI


After first tasting this sauce in a small restaurant near San Clemente in Rome, we been trying to recreate it for the longest time.  It seems my wonderfully creative wife somehow summoned its essential savoriness from asparagus stalks in the blender.  The rest is top secret.

THIS IS HOW WE DEFORM: MODEL 13700 MULTI-MODE FEEDBACK FILTERS


Here is another worthy Buchla-format design from our friends in Europe (Belgium to be more precise). In a sound-world where Don Buchla placed primary importance on envelope creation over filter use,  this double filter causes quite the stir. The lower section has a switchable prepatched cv feedback control called "Morgellons". Strangely beautiful and useful.

THIS IS HOW WE DEFORM: ALKA GLITCH CARD



This looks like a sure winner in the "let's find new ways to mess up some sound" sweepstakes as necessitated by the Buchla 208r clone.  Let's hope this handy circuit card is available soon.

THIS IS HOW WE DEFORM: PROGRAMMABLE COMPLEX WAVEFORM GENERATOR Model 259 CLONE


This Buchla clone packs quite the dual oscillation punch,  with plenty of options for further sound savaging. Functional density indeed! The original Buchla 200 series was certainly notable for this kind of high functionality with the addition of expansive cv control,  a very welcome inclusion for "musicians",  then and now who prefer intent and randomness in equal doses.
