Soviet synthesizers

If you’ve been following my thoughts or have been me for the past decade or so, you’ll know how fascinated I am by Soviet consumer goods — how the utopian communist ideal had to somehow address the fact that people like stuff. Anyways, at about 10:20 in this video and absolutely awesome sequenced (arpeggiated?) riff kicks off that is unlike anything I’ve heard out of the West of the late 70s/early 80s. I don’t know any of the details about these ridiculous machines but the tone character is ultra unique.
