Joel Chadabe (born 1938) is a composer, author, NYU professor, and internationally recognized pioneer in the development of interactive music systems. Chadabe: "For me, creating music with electronics has meant exploration, discovery, creativity, research, performance, and sharing knowledge and ideas with others in a new world of sound. My goal is to share those attitudes and activities with students and colleagues into the future." 'In 1966, I began to experiment with a Moog synthesizer at the State University of New York at Albany. In recalling those early days, I created automatic synthesized processes. For the fixed media compositions, I developed an unusual approach. I asked Bob Moog to build a four-track mixer with piano keys that functioned more like gates than mixer potentiometers, so I could pass recorded sounds through the tracks by pressing the keys and mix those recorded sounds in with synthesized sounds. It was a semi-random approach, often producing surprising and excellent results. After working with the relatively small synthesizer for a year or two, I got an idea for an analog-programmable system based on sequencers. I drew pictures of different types of sequencers, showed them to Bob, got a grant to commission Bob to build a synthesizer with those sequencers, and he then built a wonderful system that was, of course, far better than what I had drawn on paper. We called it the CEMS (Coordinated Electronic Music Studio) System. For me, it was an incredible musical opportunity. By the end of 1969, I was discovering new ways of programming sounds... It was also a period of technical difficulty in that some of the equipment was sensitive to heat and humidity. At the same time, technology was developing and everyone seemed to be exploring new technologies for music."

All New Items on flyvintageandvinyl.com are Priced Below MSRP
and do not reflect our in-store prices and are not necessarily in stock at our physical store.
In fact, most items won’t be because we’re a small, family run business and don’t have space to stock nearly 500,000 new titles.

Separate Shopping Carts for New and Used Items
Because new items available on flyvintageandvinyl.com are fulfilled by our distributor and used items available on used.flyvintageandvinyl.com
(via the “Buy Used” button above) are fulfilled by us at our physical store, they require separate shopping carts and checkout procedures.
It’s a minor inconvenience, but we’ll try to make it worth your while with our selection, ultrasonic-cleaned used records and competitive prices.
Shipping within the U.S. is $5 for the first LP plus 50¢ for each additional LP via USPS Media Mail.

A Note About Pre-Orders
Orders containing both pre-orders and “Available to Order” items from flyvintageandvinyl.com will be shipped in one package when the pre-order title(s) is/are released.

International Orders, Box Sets and Larger Items
may incur an additional shipping fee and we’ll notify you by email before we process your order. Customs forms for international orders are marked as "Merchandise"
and we are not responsible for any additional customs fees when packages arrive at their destination country. Select items aren't allowed to be shipped outside the U.S.
