SKU: optigan_minimalism Categories: ,


We hope to have this item in stock soon, but for the time being, please order this item direct from Quilter Labs’ Panoptigon site. Sorry for the hassle!

Please note: In the past, we’ve provided fully printed jackets with many of our discs. Due to changes in production which now allow us to keep a constant stock of our discs, we no longer are printing jackets for them. The discs come in white jackets with small labels affixed which show the original artwork and descriptive text. Thanks for your understanding!


Here’s a hot new sound for the 1970s, straight from New York City!
Mesmerizing musical kaleidoscopes throb from East Village loft windows and
trendy art gallery doors, where less is definitely more More MORE! And you
can be right there on the scene with the new Optigan® Minimalism program disc!

Your left hand conducts a tight ensemble of organ, flute, saxophones and
bass clarinet- pulsing bass on the special effect tabs, and whirling
arpeggios on the chord buttons. Your right hand plays vocal solfege
melodies, sung for you by none other than Tara Busch of AnalogSuicide.com!

So fill up your glass and take a deep, satisfying gulp from the sonic ocean of Minimalism!

Performance Notes:

The Optigan® Minimalism program disc was arranged specifically to allow for
a large variety of extended harmonies by pressing two or more chord
buttons simultaneously. For instance, holding down C Maj and E Min will
produce a C Maj7 chord. G Maj and D Min combined will produce a G9

chord. Also, since the basslines on the special effects tabs contain no
thirds, they can be used equally well in major or minor keys. Let your own
imagination be your guide, and make your own kind of music!
