A book about the mysterious link between synth user and machine? This was always going to be something we’d want to get our hands on, but when we did we were pretty blown away by what author Kim Bjørn has produced.
We wanted to support the project and help spread the word and stock the book. It’s a beautiful piece of work, replete with photos and illustrations and covering the full range and evolution of electronic instrument design from the early days to the current cutting-edge.
From the Push Turn Move website:
352 pages richly illustrated with photos, illustrations, and prototypes, and with a foreword by electronic music visionary Jean-Michel Jarre. The book celebrates the art and science of interface design in electronic music by exploring the functional, artistic, philosophical, and aesthetic worlds within the mysterious link between player and machine.
