Welcome to the homepage of Synth Tech Project aka Synth Tech Project Productions.Check out the NAVIGATION area on the left-hand side of this webpage or the SUBPAGES website links below where I've posted some of my photos & other info about myself and the Baltimore SDIY Group.
For public music & video performances I, Logan Mitchell Sr, use the professional names "Synth Tech Project" & "Synth Tech Project Productions".
I've had an interest in Electronic Music since the late 1960's when I first listened to the albums of Walter Carlos (Switched On Bach), Dick Hyman (The Electric Eclectics of Dick Hyman), Paul Bley & Peacock and Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon. My inspiration for building electronic music circuits comes from the late Robert A. Moog of Moog Music, Alan R. Pearlman of ARP Instruments, Tom Oberheim of Oberheim Electronics, Donald Buchla of Buchla Electronic Musical Instruments, the late John Simonton Jr of PAIA & a host of other pioneers in the electronic music synthesizer field.
I am also inspired by music groups such as Emerson Lake & Palmer, Yes, Tangerine Dream, Kraftwerk, Triumvirat as well as individual keyboardists such as Keith Emerson, George Duke, Bernie Worrell, Gary Wright, Gregg Rolie & Don Preston, all of whom I've had the pleasure to meet & take photos with, as well as inspiration by Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Rick Wakeman, the late Richard Wright, the late Billy Preston, Greg Phillinganes, Billy Beck, Joe Sample, Richard Tee, Don Grolnick, Bob James, Dave Brubeck, Greg Allman, Joe Sample, Donald Fagen, Cornelius Bumpus, Richard Lainhart, Jordan Rudess, Jon Lord, Jan Hammer, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Michael McDonald, Elton John, Stevie Wonder, Tom Scholz, Tom Coster, Richard Kermode & Larry Dunn.
In November of 2007 I decided to put together an electronic music equipment users group called the Baltimore SDIY Group (http://sites.google.com/site/baltimoresdiygroup) for those of us who live in the Mid-Atlantic region & collect music synthesizer equipment. We have performed publicly since June of 2008 as the ElectroAcoustic Orchestra, the Baltimore SDIY Variable Ensemble. Most recently we have been performing as the Baltimore SDIY Group and as the Baltimore SDIY Group & Friends. You can see a list of our past & upcoming shows at http://sites.google.com/site/baltimoresdiygroup/Home/group-shows
I'm still in the process of designing the circuitry for my own analog modular music synthesizer, as time permits, that I'm building which I've been working on since October of 2005. So far I've completed a Dual VCO (Voltage Controlled Oscillator) & a Dual White/Pink Noise Generator. I'm still working on the Dual VCLPF (Voltage Controlled Low Pass Filter) & the Dual ADSR (Attack/Decay/Sustain/Release) Envelope Generator. You can see the photos of the project here - My Analog Modular Synthesizer Project.
In the later part of 2007 I decided to start collecting & putting together synthesizer modules made by Paia & Doepfer to eventually have two large modular analog synthesizers full of these modules. You can see the photos of the project here - My Paia Music Synthesizer Project & My Doepfer Music Synthesizer Project.
In October of 2010, the Baltimore CITY PAPER decided to do an article about me in their paper - http://citypaper.com/music/homemade-sounds-1.1054232 which is where the 3 photos at the top of the webpage came from. You can see a larger version of each photo above by clicking on any of them. They were taken right in my dining room along with my synthesizer equipment that you see in the photos. You can check out the articles in the ATTACHMENTS section below. The document is in Microsoft WORD format - "Homemade Sounds article on 10272010.doc" & in Adobe Acrobat Reader format - "Homemade Sounds article on 10272010.pdf".
Thank you for taking the time to look at this webpage as it's greatly appreciated.
