When design and photography student Tabita Hub searched for a project her boyfriend Michael Matlak was quick to suggest a book on his favourite ‘toys’: Roland synths and drum machines.
Born out of the heart of a fan the coffee-table sized mammoth book follows 23 legendary machines such as the 303, 808 or 909 drum machines or the world famous RE – 201 ‘Space Echo’ and also includes many interviews with musicians who made these instruments their own and brought sonic joy to the world.
POEM’s Thomas Janak talked to the enthusiastic Michael Matlak about the book, what prompted it and much more.
