About Uptown Oscillators

Uptown Oscillators is a music project

After faith, family, friends and the intentional community I live in, my favorite things are electronic music and instruments. My personal tastes in music run to industrial, electronic, ambient, beats, noise and more. I’ve been an information technology professional for decades, and most would probably agree, a better IT guy than musician. I like computers, especially online networking, but I love music and gear, hence Uptown Oscillators was born.

Hopefully over time, Uptown Oscillators becomes less about me and more of a communal effort from Uptown Chicago and the rest of the World.

Initially, in addition to occasional blog posts on the home page, there are gear specific pages (hover over ‘Synth Gear’ on the main menu bar to see the mega menu of choices). This section and ones like it, will be greatly expanded over time.

The gear specific pages have images, review(s), contact info, support and download links, and product specifications. Additionally, there are curated YouTube playlists of product demonstrations, news, tutorials and music.

To start with, most of these products are ones I own, have owned, want to own or have great interest in. Naturally, I would like to see this go far beyond what my interests and experiences have been.

Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth,
burst into jubilant song with music;
make music to the Lord with the harp,
with the harp and the sound of singing,
with trumpets and the blast of the ram’s horn-
shout for joy before the Lord, the King.
Psalm 98:4-6 NIV

Above all, Community praise to G-d with anything that vibrates, instruments, gear, production, technology, science and exploration of an amazing creation!
