Synapse: The Electronic Music Magazine, Volume 1-3 (1976-1979)

18 September 2012, dusan

Synapse: The Electronic Music Magazine (later Synapse: International Electronic Music) was a bi-monthly American magazine about synthesizers and electronic music published March 1976 to June 1979. During an era when commercial synthesizers were still pretty new and mostly DIY, Synapse was notable for its high production values, interviews with famous musicians, and articles by well-known writers.

The production team consisted of editor Douglas Lynner, art director Chris August, photographer Bill Matthias and managing editors Colin Gardner and Melodie Bryant. After 14 issues they ran out of money and closed down.

The magazine issues have been scanned and posted online by its founder Cynthia Webster at Cyndustries.

    Hello friend. Firstly congratulations on your excellent blog and wish that lasts a long time on the net. Secondly, say I’m very impressed and grateful for giving us the download links Synapse publication. I have several blogs dedicated to electronic music, including one devoted exclusively to publications dealing with electronic music (http://stahlfabrik-exlibris.blogspot.com.es/), so I wanted to ask if you’d have any problems if I I put these links Synapse publication in my blog, obviously mentioning the source. I hope to hear from you. A Warm greetings from Spain, Europe.

    When I build these PDFs last May and offered them to my readers (here), I also coined a little mix celebrating the magazine. You can find it here.
