Experimental composer David Chesworth has announced the reissue of his debut album 50 Synthesizer Greats that was originally released in 1979. Starting out writing with post punk duo Essendon Airport, it was in his parent’s lounge room that the foundations for this album were first developed.
Setting up with an Akai reel to reel recorder and a Korg 700 synth, Chesworth recorded 37 tracks that explored vast landscapes of sound and now for the first time ever, the album is being remastered and reissued on both vinyl and digital. In addition to the reissue of his debut album, Chesworth has also just released a number of videos to coincide with the release, which were made on the EMS Spectron video synthesiser of which there were only 50 made in the world.
50 Synthesizer Greats by David Chesworth is to be released on vinyl and digital on Friday March 31 through Chapter Music. To pre order head here.
