Esoteric-Modulation-episode2-Superbooth-and-the-Dark-Sparkler-.jpg

In our first full-on episode, we say hi and talk to our uber-guest Kyle Swisher aka Dark Sparkler. We talk Superbooth, Belin, The Impulse Command, Wrong Sound Stage, DPW - Shape, Metro Modular - Buchla format modules, Buchla Quad, and the Soma Labs Pulsar 23. We also talk to Kyle about his Buchla Easel and choreography projects. Then we move onto his latest album 'I NO BEAST / I NO ANGEL'  that sees him running a Lyra 8 into his reel to reel tape, producing what we thought was a creative, brave and honest album.
