Depeche Mode: Proč se králové elektropopu stali v socialistickém bloku fetišem

Jak se ze skupiny Depeche Mode, zpívající o nerovnosti, chudobě a vykořisťování na Západě, která by bez problémů prošla cenzurou, stal v socialistických zemích underground? Depeche Mode dodnes těží z toho, že se ve správný čas ocitli ve správné studené válce.

Yamaha Tenori-on

The Yamaha Tenori-on is an electronic musical instrument designed and created by the Japanese artist Toshio Iwai and Yu Nishibori of the Music and Human Interface Group at the Yamaha Center for Advanced Sound Technology.

The modes and sound sets in these instruments are the same. Both devices have an LCD screen on the bottom edge of the frame. Using the connection function, it is possible to play a synchronized session, or to send and receive songs...
