Reptilicus, Senking and Rúnar at Grant Avenue Studio

Last Friday and Saturday, Reptilicus, along with Senking and Runar Magnusson on the Saturday, stopped by the legendary Grant Avenue Studio in Hamilton, Canada, founded by the Lanois brothers and the site of numerous classic recordings. A collection of beautiful vintage modular synths was made available for our sonic exploration, among them EMS Synthi A, ARP 2600 + sequencer, Moog 15, Minimoog, Roland System 100 + sequencer.

We were privileged to have Bob Doidge at the mixing desk, and enjoyed the assistance and deep expertise of Dean Batute when operating the vintage gear. Rob Fantinatto filmed the Saturday session, but he’s working on a documentary on modular synths: I Dream of Wires.

All of this was made possible by the great Bill Blakeney and Praveer Baijal of Yatra-Arts, to both of whom we’re eternally grateful. The studio sessions at Grant Avenue were a great combination with the two concerts in Toronto and Hamilton organised by Yatra-Arts.
