A book titled Synthesizer Evolution: From Analogue to Digital (and Back) celebrates the evolution of the electronic instrument and its impact on music culture.
The book charts a time period from 1963 to 1995, featuring hand drawn illustrations of every major synth, drum machine and sampler that was released in this time alongside detailed descriptions.
It’s written and illustrated by London-based musician, artist and author Oli Freke and comes out via Velocity Press on January 8, 2021.
Oli Freke said: “This book has grown out of a life-long obsession with synthesizers and electronic music, and it’s fantastic to be able to share this with my fellow synth obsessives and music fans who celebrate the synth’s role in modern music. I’m eternally grateful to Velocity Press for going with me on this journey and supporting the project so keenly.”
