Synthesist Doug Lynner composes and performs experimental electronic music internationally.
Doug is known for his intimate, “In-The-Circuit” performance style. That style has given birth to his “Living Synthesis” compositions – part fixed composition, part improvisation, part circuit immersion.
His process is to create unique instruments for each performance that are self-active and cross-influencing in which he participates through direct interaction with each instrument’s autonomic activities through their knobs, switches and patch cords.
Basing his aesthetic upon the notion of “sound for sound’s sake” he explores the intrinsic value of sound through mixtures of ambient, avant-garde, rhythmic, modular tonalism and soundscape genres.
Doug received a BFA in Music Composition from California Institute of The Arts. His mentors were Morton Subotnick, Harold Budd, James Tenney, Leonid Hambro, and Nicholas England.
He was editor/publisher of Synapse, The International Electronic Music Magazine, and has produced dozens of modular synthesizer video tutorials that he offers to the modular synthesizer community.
