Over the course of several weeks, Grosskopf wrote and recorded the material that wound up on Synthesist , which was eventually released on the venerable Hamburg-based kosmische imprint Sky. RVNG has reissued the album, which is held in high esteem among early synth enthusiasts but is not widely known, along with an additional disc of re-workings by some of the record's admirers Oneohtrix Point Never , James Ferraro, Arp , etc.
Between the original record and the new versions, Synthesist offers an endlessly listenable introduction to Grosskopf's music that also serves a fascinating window into the sound of a specific time and place. In the liner notes to the set, Grosskopf writes of how maintaining the Minimoog in the apartment was a nightmare, and that the pitch would go flat or sharp depending on warm and cold it was in the space. He eventually figured out that if he placed a watt light bulb near the synth, he could regulate the temperature enough to keep the instrument sounding good.
