Matthew Davidson is a musician and synth nut.  He took some great video footage at the Analogue Heaven Northeast 2009 gathering and set it to music:

Once a year, analog synth enthusiasts gather to socialize and play rare and unusual musical instruments. I captured the May 2009 gathering with a Canon 5DmkII and a 50mm f/1.4 lens. I simply sat the Camera on a tripod, frame the shot as I would a photo, focused and captured.

The music was produced using a Euro-format analog modular, controlled by Volta. Aside from the drums (MOTU BPM), everything was analog.

The video, the composition and his self-composed soundtrack are just fantastic.  Above all, the drool factor of all of these rare, expensive and amazing synthesizers all in one place makes my head spin.  Here is Matthew’s photostream from the gathering.

If you’re into synthesizers at all, then you probably know of the Analogue Heaven mailing list (I’ve been a member since it started way more than 10 years ago), but if you don’t, then run over there and subscribe right now.

Special prize to anyone who names every single synth in this video!
