After many years of surfing the web, digging deep down the sea of bits and bytes looking for information about the Roland D50, I've decided to create my own website and try to concentrate as much information as I can. So, here I am, writing the first blog post :)
This website is hosted at Neocities, a very nice Geocities-alike hosting service that aims to revive "the old creative web of the nineties", in times when all modern websites look almost the same (boring!). I'm very happy to be part of the Neocities community, and I invite you to browse some of the other websites of this place. Some of them are really nice trips to the funniest era of the world wide web!
Oh, let me introduce myself. My name is Facundo Arena, I´m producer of The Kyoto Connection project. We do sweet electrornic music mixed with japanese sounds. Over the latest ten years, TKC released six albums with more than a millon downloads world-wide! (they are all free to download, using Creative Commons licenses). If you listen to my music, you'll quickly discover that digital synths, and specially the Roland D50 are the core of our sound. Let me show you one of our latest releases!
My dream is to build a big community of Roland D50 fans. I know it'll take some time, but with your help, we can do it. Day after day lots of people turn on their D50/D550s to make music (check out the live pictures senction), so I think that this website could be a nice reference for all of them to discover all the potential of our favorite synth. I'll do my best to keep this place updated day after day, and if you want to join me on my adventure, you are welcomed!
Finally, I invite you to interact by leaving a comment on this blog, or by joining the forum.
Enjoy The Cult Of D50!
