It was a need for unique voice. I knew I wasn’t going to be able to take the piano where I wanted to go. I kept searching for this. I used to run my keyboards through electronic boxes, like a ring modulator, trying to get a unique sound. When I got my hands on a Minimoog, I thought “I know what to do with this!” The sound can remind you of a clarinet, a flute, or a sitar. It’s the fact that it bends and flows. People should have a license to use the pitch wheel! When I first got a Minimoog, the pitch bend was set to be a fourth. Eventually I got it adjusted to where I want it. Some people can get by with pitch bend set to two semitones, but you can not express the creativity that I look for with two semitones. You have to be coordinated, and listen, using your ear like a violinist does.more
