Ciani’s Buchla 200e System performance took place during the Machines in Music synthesiser fair in NYC on the 8th of October 2016.

Unlike stereo sound, which is designed for a two speaker set-up (left and right), modern quadrophonic sound uses four channels, with speakers positioned in a square shape at each corner.

LIVE Quadraphonic LP includes a hardware decoder to decode two channels of audio from the vinyl disc back to the four-channel recording.
