Rain, With Occasional Face-Melting...

by Chris Randall

While Adam and I were waiting for the Lyft to take us to Holocene to start setting up Sync02 yesterday, I was taking a quick scroll through Facebook, and it threw up one of those "memories" things from the same day in 2016, which happened to be the day I arrived in San Francisco for Sync01. It was a nice juxtaposition, considering that my initial idea for a gathering of all our friends in this business to show off the gear and music we make in a comfortable and casual environment has effectively doubled in size in the space of a year.

While it may seem like I put all this together from a casual observation point, the simple fact of the matter is that I just come up with a context, and everyone else in the Eurorack Family commits their efforts and resources to making it a success. By the time the thing is running, I'm just a bemused observer.

In any event, the people at Holocene were understanding and helpful, Jason at Control Voltage did all the hard work, and all our amazing family of manufacturers and musicians pulled out the stops to make a great event. I'm so glad to be a part of this crew of amazingly talented people.

A special thank-you to T2, Rodent, Bana Haffar, and Derrick Baseck for putting on a fucking amazing after-event performance. That shit was epic, no joke.

@boobs: Yeah, that was something you don't see every day. All four of them really put on a show, but Baseck's was some legendary shit, no lie.

We should make Steve wear a T-shirt that says "I'M BOOBS" or, more simply, "BOOBS" at events like this. I'm sure that a number of people have been with boobs and not known it.

Anyway, yeah, a good day it was.

@adam - a tiny name tag might do the trick but i'm sure i'd get some raised eye brows.. perhaps i could invert the name tag so it keeps it a bit inside joke-ish.

or "hey, i'm in the 3rd grade!" 58008

anyway.. Sync02 was great. was good to hang and see the peoples face to face

As a non-modular guy, I found the expo portion a bit frightening in a "I don't know what any of this stuff does" sort of way. But it was definitely cool to see all the same. I especially got a kick out of watching the Roger Linn demo the Linnstrument.
It was great to meet Chris, and the performances definitely made the trek down from Canada worth it.

I quite enjoyed T2's set. Anybody know if/where I can find his stuff online? Unfortunately 'T2' isn't the easiest thing to google for accurate results.

@boobs - yeah, I wouldn't actually expect you to wear such a garment. :-)

@lockan - T2 is Tyler Thompson. This seems to be his web presence: link []
