Welcome to Experimental Synth. My name is Chris Stack. I’ve been playing synthesizers since I bought my first one (a Korg Micro-Preset) back in the late 70s. I started making synthesizer and electronic music videos in 2008, when I was the marketing manager at Moog Music. Since then I’ve launched my own YouTube channel and other related social media. This site is where I curate that content, and mix in a bit more. [cont…]
It can’t all be experimentation. Sometimes you have to get out of the lab. I’m very happy to relate that music resulting from my recent collaboration with Alina Quu was used in a performance by Lindsey Kelley Dance. The event was a huge success. Sold out both nights.

LINDSEY KELLEY DANCE – performed by Amy Borskey, Lindsey Kelley Brewer, Kala Hildebrand, Alexis Miller – at the Masonic Temple, Asheville, NC March 20, 2015
music by Alina Quu and Chris Stack
From a recording session with Sally Sparks – Recorded live. No overdubs. I was handling the bass, sequencing and drones using a DSI Pro 2, Moog Voyager and Animoog. Sally was doing the shredding (and other melodic parts) on another Pro 2, a Haken Continuum and the Pianoteq virtual piano. Listen for her amazing simultaneous Continuum/Pro 2 and Continuum/Piano lines.
