Berna [Mac, MaxMSP, Sound]

Berna is a software simulation for Mac of a late 1950s electroacoustic music studio. Created using MaxMSP, Berna includes oscillators, filters, modulators, tape recorders, mixers, are all packed in a interface with historical accuracy.

At that time there wasn’t any electronic musical instruments market, as a matter of fact, most of the equipment was adapted from scientific tools belonging to radio engineering departments. Sometimes the equipment was built from scratch cannibalizing anything that had wires, tubes and pots, more rarely, the studios used the few commercial instruments available in those days, such as the Melchord, the Trautonium and the Theremin. Contrarily to what happens today, electronic music then was everything but fast and easy to create. A few minutes of electronic composition could take more than one year of work.
