Analog BBQ 2

Tuesday, August 9th, 2011

After Analog BBQ 1 in 2009, synth collector and musician Thomas P. Heckmann invited us (Michael Buchner, Oli Rubow and me) to combine a fine BBQ afternoon (with hex shaped slices of cucumber) with a guided tour through his forrest of vintage synthesizers. A really impressive conglomerate of electronics… It’s a pleasure to share some impressions:

hex shaped cucumber


Simmons salad


BBQ master Thomas “at work”


Simmons wall lamp


Oli trying a Syndrum


Thomas demonstrating one of his countless magic add-ons


Michael (can’t hide his true emotions)


Genesis’ SDSV


The “Simmons corner”


about 5% of Thomas’ Star Wars collection

Thanks to Thomas and his girl friend Natasha who have been great hosts!
