Our interests in cats, synthesizers and highways come together in this photo featuring Sam Sam checking out my US 101 shield, which I was using as a backdrop for a livestream concert on Saturday.
The weeklong takeover by Keith Winstanley and his cats Milo and Jet continues. Today we have Milo sitting comfortably (?) in front of a classic Minimoog Model D.
The Minimoog is a favorite of ours at CatSynth. You can see photos of our own and others here.

One can never have too much sawtooth.
From @ModularSynths (Daniel.ModularSynths) on Twitter, we have this photo of a cat inspecting a
Immer neugierig (Always curious)
IWe are sure this cat is making some interesting music with his curiosity, although the Voyagers are monophonic. So we will only hear one paw at a time.
Please tweet us your cat-and-music @catsynth to be featured in a future post and across our social media platforms.
Marcel is back today, with a pair of Korg M1R modules. We also see a Minimoog in the back.

It’s been a slow recovery from our latest bout of this year’s influenza and “NAMMthrax,” but we are getting there slowly. Indeed, I have been well enough to spend more time working in the studio again. Of course, if I am in the studio there is a good chance Sam Sam will be there, too.
It’s always a delight to have her around. I think she is getting used to all the weird electronic sounds just as Luna did. As a more social cat, I think she mostly just enjoys being near the action. I do sometimes feel guilty when she gets comfy under the main console and I want to use the Nord. It’s a studio musician’s version of the cat-in-lap dilemma.
We are going to move forward with some video and music work today, as body and energy permit. We are also doing our part for today’s mass ritual here in the United States with our Superb Owl.
We hope you all have an enjoyable day, however you chose to fill it!
