Five Steps is the fruit of a recent collaboration between Jonathan Fitoussi and Clemens Hourrière.
The Buchla 200 is one of the first modular synthesizers dating from the 1970s.

Jonathan Fitoussi and Clemens Hourrière, sharing a passion for vintage synthesithers, accepted an invitation at EMS Stockholm for a week-long residency to explore and create this body of work.

Using solely the Buchla 200 without any other instruments, the two composers/producers imagines each piece as part of a film track.

Using certain sound ideas and talented tinkering, the work is somewhat mimimalist, and offers different moods, corresponding with different times of the day and the city of Stockholm.

released September 4, 2015

“Five Steps is a gentle and friendly collection of music created on the Buchla 200, my first choice of all the Buchla instruments.
Jonathan Fitoussi and Clemens Hourriere use the 200 with precision and musicality; this speaks both to the composers’ masterful accomplishment
and to the enormous flexibility of the Buchla 200. The album is quite even in quality and variety; from sequenced beat patterns to ethereal dreamscapes.
My favorite was the textured melodic fragments of Instants Ephemeres.”

François BAYLE
“… toutes mes félicitations pour la délicate précision et la lisibilité parfaite des jeux.
Beaucoup d'imagination des timbres, (…) c'est un moment de franche simplicité parmi la “nature des sons”.

Suzanne CIANI
“… I love hearing the Buchla (…) and especially appreciate the attention you give to spatial placement. I love the precision and intentionality of your compositions, but especially the spirit.
Wonderful listening ! ”
