Electronic Music Resource Book: The Buchla Music Easel. Xerox copy. approx. 75 pages. "...The final example of programming to be done in this manual involves setting up a self-performing instrument which requires no input other than simply turning it on. This instrument is based on the use of random voltages so that it will never repeat a pattern...design and programming of such "auto-instruments" is amost interesting method of exploring the potentials of the Music Easel. In such designs one should also consider various degrees of human interaction, using the "both" position of the control switch. As closing words for direction and exploration, "TRY EVERYTHING---the least that can happen is that something will be learned."
