Musicians in Russia are researching the first synthesizers made of any available components on hand, covertly circulated by passionate scientists. Liberty is not to be found in musical writing, but in the components themselves, incapable of reproducing the same sound twice: a type of punk, stringed instrument. Léon Thérémine’s influence haunts this narrative wherein rare documents are unveiled.
