What a terrific picture and article on Cortland Hultberg in the
May 2, Issue of UBC Reports. When I was a young student back then,
Professor Hultberg allowed me to use the Buchla synthesiser to produce
a sound track for my film Plastic Surgery. It was a thrill to use
and I am grateful to Professor Hultberg for giving me that opportunity.
What ever became of those two instruments; they would probably fetch
a fortune on Ebay.

Editor's note: Thanks for your letter. We found the Buchla
and Moog are in the office of Music Instructor Bob Pritchard, who
was a student of Prof. Cortland Hultberg and learned on the synthesizers.
"I doubt we'd ever let eBay near them," said Pritchard.
"They're part of the history of the school, and of the development
of electroacoustic music in Canada."
