Doug Lynner

San Franciso Bay Area composer/perfromer Doug Lynner is known for his intimate, "In-The-Circuit" modular synthesizer perfomance style.
That style, combined with his devotion to the intrinsic value of sound, has given birth to his "Living Synthesis" compositions - part fixed composition, partimprovisation, and part circuit immersion.
His process is to create unique instruments for each performance that are self active and cross
influencing and in which he particpates through
direct interaction with each instrument's autonomic activities therough their knobs, switches and patchcords.

Doug received a BFA in Music Composition from the California Institute of the Arts where his members where Morton Subotnick, Harold Budd, James Tenney, Leonid Hambro and Nicholas England .

He was the editor and publisher of Synapse Magazine, the first electronic music magazine, and is know for his Patch of The Week modular synthesizer video tutorial series.
