Dutch synth maestro Legowelt has announced his new album Unconditional Contours, which was made with some pretty extraordinary resources.

He made the album during his time as artist-in-residence at the Swiss Museum & Center for Electronic Music Instruments. This allowed him to use their collection of over 5,000 synthesizers, organs, drum machines and effects that have been collected over a 35-year period by Klemens Niklaus Trenkle.

“When I first saw this collection, I was truly flabbergasted. Endless rows of synthesizers – some so obscure I had not ever seen nor heard of them,” shares Legowelt in a statement.

Across the record, he uses the various instruments including the rare Farfisa Synthorchestra and the EVS-1 Evolution, the “shittiest rompler ever made,” he says.

Unconditional Contours will be released on October 2 via OUS. It can be pre-order on Bandcamp below and the first track from the record.
