I modified a Roland TR-808 and uploaded this video of the modification. I have been contacted by various owners of the machine, as it has passed from person to person. As far as I know, it currently resides in a studio in the UK.
THREE KINGS : TADAO KIKUMOTO, ROBERT MOOG, ROGER LINN
Three Kings is a triptych that celebrates the work of three electronic instrument pioneers: Tadao Kikumoto, Robert Moog, and Roger Linn. These inventors are amongst my heroes. Almost every piece of music produced in the last 25 years that includes either a synthesizer, a sample, or a drum machine, owes it's sound in no small way to the work of at least one, if not all three, of these pioneers.
