Welcome to Experimental Synth. My name is Chris Stack and 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.

I often think of my videos not as “tutorials”, but as “inspirationals”. While they may be focused on a particular piece of gear, it is almost always used in combination with other equipment. To me that’s where the fun and creativity in electronic music happens. With the wealth of audio, MIDI and Control Voltage connection configurations possible with even the simplest gear, a look at even a small slice of the possibilities can be enough to generate fresh new ideas.  I hope you find that to be the case.

Take a look at the options available under the Video menu, and check out the rest of the site. Also, scan the Asheville Synth Report to see what’s oscillating up here in the mountains.

Synthesizers are not the only subject matter for my video work:

Very often my work falls into the category of “content creation”. I Specialize in Science, Technology, Music and the Arts, and have done extensive work in Video Production; PR and Copy Writing; Graphic Design; Social Media; Web Design and Management; Audio Production and Photography.

Chris Stack Xenography Album

“…an album of inspired soundscapes. Feel free to stream it first if you have any doubts. Rest assured that mere seconds into the first track, you will know that you are in capable hands.” - Ted Stahl

On “Xenography” a vast array of synthesizers, piano, nylon string guitar, Moog Guitar, shakuhachi and voices pure and processed, come together to create a soundtrack for travels to oblique destinations.
