Mute Records, the iconic record company home to Depeche Mode, Nick Cave, Erasure and now very cool new acts Beth Jeans Houghton, Josh T. Pearson, S.C.U.M, and others, finally comes full circle and is releasing the perfect Xmas gift for all musicians or wannabee musicians: a small two oscillator synthesizer (equipped with a sequencer/pulser, yes....) controlled by touch and tilt: the Dirty Electronics Mute Synth. And it is shaped around the Mute logo too.
The more you squeeze it, the louder it gets or the crazier the sounds could go: this device is truly amazing and sounds lethal indeed. There are no knobs, there are no confort zone for you to rest on: this synth is dysfunctionnal by design and that's one of the beauty of it as sounds come and go and will never, ever be reproduced twice. Don't even ask about a memory patch, duh :))
This incredible instrument is so much at home in the Mute Catalog, and it would be a great add under your Christmas tree (sale price is about 70 Euros).
I want mine signed by Daniel Miller :)
