The Organist Episode 20: Enter the Optigan

Posted by peahix on June 10th, 2014

Way back in the 90s, Pea was filmed for inclusion in a documentary about collectors by filmmaker Rodney Ascher. The film never got finished, but the footage has now resurfaced as a stand-alone episode of this podcast.

    That is a fascinating video there Pea. There really needs to be a documentary movie made about you and the Optigan. I for one find the subject matter extremely interesting as I am into collecting obscure, forgotten, and abandoned media formats.

    Would there ever be an attempt to either duplicate some of the rarer Optigan discs or maybe transfer some of the Orchestron samples over to the Optigan format and sell the discs from your website? I would love to turn my Optigan, as crappy as it is, into a low budget mellotron. It is too bad that those samples/sounds are copyrighted or are they?
