Do it Yourself Serge Eurorack Modular + Haible by Random*Source with Full Kits and building guidance by Dr. Wiener Serge Modular is a legendary
and incredibly inventive name in modular synthesis that has inspired hoards of modular and synthesizer manufactures in the years since it's inception.
Incredibly music, and incredibly practical, Serge is one of the most unique and distinguishable systems both in sound and use.

Nu finns en dokumentär om Ljudande Gotland av Eva Sjöstrand tillgänglig på Sveriges Radio P2!

Sveriges Radio skriver: 


Det är Visby Internationella Tonsättarcentrum som bjudit in fyra av vår tids ledande ljudkonstnärer att sommartid ljudsätta tillvaron på Gotland. Detta sker på fyra platser: vid Helgumannens fiskeläge på Fårö, i en lång, lång tunnel i en slagghög på ön Furillen, i den vackra botaniska trädgården i Visby och i den lika vackra trädgården och konsthallen vid Körsbärsgården i Sundre.

I dokumentären möter vi konstnärerna och deras verk, och bland besökarna en amerikansk ljudprofessor och en musikalisk trädgårdsmästare. Som med lyssnaren funderar över vad ljuden och frånvaro av ljud berättar för oss om tillvaron och om oss själva.
