An introduction to the OP–1

An introduction to the OP–1 / Wallpaper, 2012

So Wallpaper* featured an article on the truly awesome Teenage Engineering OP–1 synthesiser last month, and as part of the iPad edition extras, I got to make some films explaining how the thing works.

The tune is a little cheesy and basic, but I hope it gives an introduction as to how easy and quick it is to make music on this great device. I picked it up – with zero prior knowledge of synths – and put together some fun music in no time at all.

Read the article here. Buy the OP–1 here.

The Tube

The Tube / BBC2

If you didn’t catch any of the recent London Underground documentary on BBC2, I strongly advise you to do so.

For those living in London, or at all interested in technology/architecture, it makes for absolutely fascinating viewing — documentary filmmaking at its best. Catch the whole lot on iPlayer while you can.

Slow motion Shuttle footage

Best of the best Shuttle footage

If you can stand the commentary of constant acronyms, this is some of the most technically and aesthetically amazing camera footage you will ever see.

Thank you ISO50 once again.
