I'm sure that Rachmiel, Scott Solina and Emdot are fans, but any others here?

I am not worthy of making such a dumb mistake.
Scot, please feel free to refer to me as Buchlahassa, Moogalassa, Nerd B., etc
Scott's synth lines often have a little swing in them, making him, IMO, the godfather of sequenced grooves. Anyhow, I'll pick up the boxed set, Scot - thanks for the tip.

 Oh, right, you're in Montreal too! Your friend is pretty cool to set this up. What a great tribute.

Oh Yes !
I first heard Raymond Scot's Electronium-based music many years ago on a vinyl single (!) given away with the Keyboard Mag ! That was in the late 1980's.
I try to give a little tribute to Raymond's modular mayhem in most soundbanks I make. In fact, Krakli's new S3B synth has two such presets. (see ARP Raymond's Lab 1 + 2).
I love the apparent simplicity of his Electronium music. Some of these tunes are so beautiful. Certain sounds are simple and yet complex at the same time.

clued me in as a kid who he was; for a great sampling of his pioneering
electronic work, check http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manhattan_Research_Inc. out.

Alleged, the only "production" model Electronium was purchased by Barry Gordy of Motown fame. It's probably sitting in some warehouse somewhere.

I read that during the Bugs Bunny heyday, Scott was signed to Warner Bro's so Carl Stalling could use any Raymond Scott melodic references in the cartoon scores without paying royalties. Rush's La Villa Strangiato has a nice homage referencing Powerhouse.
It's a fun riff to play on guitar by the way.
