UBC Reports | Vol. 48 | No. 8 | Jun. 6, 2002


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."
