Peter Blasser is a designer of electronic instruments and one of a kind in
the world of synthesizer builders. His circuit designs catalyse
philosophical concepts into whimsical analog synthesizers that have been
evolving since he started his company, Ciat-Lonbarde, in Baltimore more
than 15 years ago. Constantly rehashing his old designs, the instruments
one can find in his store, now settled in Berlin, trace back to several
others he has made in the past which are often idiosyncratically documented
and generously shared in the form of downloadable paper circuits. Signature
unmarked wooden instruments that go along Peter’s outlook on life, inviting
users to an intuitive and playful approach we enjoyed throughout our
conversation. More akin to craft than industry, Blasser has used materials
such as wood, paper, or fabric as a substrate for circuits, exploring
possibilities for more sustainable electronics and re-imagining its role in
a distant future.
