Such a pioneer of analog synthesis. I'd met him a couple of times, as well as his son. Probably many here on this forum have. So sad.

Don Buchla basically let me invent my own unpaid college internship, rewriting manual materials for him to finish my Technical Writing program 15 or so years ago.


I walked up to him at a performance involving one of his instruments, explained what I was looking for, and he took me on.


He was always very gracious and laid back, even when I was late turning material around for him. (Documenting a Buchla instrument is not a simple process.)


He was not only a major talent, but a decent human being -- two things that don't always go together.
