Hosted by the Faculty of Victorian College of the Arts and Melbourne Conservatorium of Music in Melbourne Tonmeister Les Craythorn takes a tour of The University of Melbourne’s Synthi 100, one of the world’s ground-breaking music machines. Manufactured in 1973, it is one of only 30 made and - following recent restoration to its original condition by Les Craythorn– is one of maybe three that have been restored to original working condition. Les will demonstrate some of the important works connected with this machine’s history, including Percy GRAINGER’s rarely realised Free Music.
