Now in its 10th year, Post Modular is the first UK company that pioneered the idea of supplying unusual synthesizer modules in Britain, primarily for the eurorack standard and more recently joined by one of its main inspirations: Buchla – further encouraging experimentation via the analogue/digital crossover.
During this time the modular scene has undergone an incredible renaissance -multiplying exponentially. Post Modular is proud to have supplied not only the end user, but also the initial set-ups of all the newer UK wide initiatives that have sprung up to meet this demand.
Post Modular is run by A. David Crawforth.
As a founding member of the influential artist run organisation Beaconsfield in Vauxhall London, David has been making experimental sound and performance art works for 24 years, including Rude Mechanic with Hayley Newman and Finnish duo Pan sonic in 1996 and a double album released under the same title in 1999. He has made numerous sound installations with Naomi Siderfin under the moniker BAW (Beaconsfield Art Works) over the last 20 years, as well as individual works exhibited under his own name.
He is currently collaborating with Gilbert & Siderfin on a new project for 2015/16.
In 2004 he got into modular – believing that the sonic world should have more alternatives to computer dominated electronic sound. In 2008/9 – with a shoestring of support from family and friends – he launched Post Modular to spread the word.
Post Modular identifies Eurorack as the most accessible and creatively exciting modular format available – and will endeavor to support and supply the most unusual and unique of these brands.
Special thanks go to Peter Edwards, Minna Haukka and Tony & Wendy Crawforth – without whose unwavering belief, generosity of spirit and practical help, Post Modular would never have got off the ground…
