Jon Appleton - Two Melodramas For Synclavier.  I’ve had this in my collection for so long that I forget where I found it.  I’ve just discovered that it’s worth a few bucks, not outrageous money but anywhere from 30 to 50 times what I paid for it, based on past sales and final auction results.  Sometimes picking up weird looking records can pay off.  I’ll post a similar one tomorrow.  Stay tuned!

OSCILLATIONS #9: Jon Appleton

"Em 1969, Jon Appleton publicou suas primeiras gravações ("Appleton Syntonic Menageire" e também seu álbum em colaboração com o músico de jazz Don Cherry, "Human Music"). Depois disto ele gravou diversos outros discos, muitos deles executados no Synclavier (que era chamado de Dartmouth Digital Synthesizer nos primeiros anos de existência), um instrumento desenvolvido por ele em parceria com Sydney Alonso e Cameron Jones. Este instrumento [o primeiro sintetizador digital a ser comercializado] se tornou bastante famoso, principalmente nos anos 80, quando ficou bastante conhecido apesar muito caro.”
