Nyle Steiner originally conceived of the concept of a brass-style electronic synthesizer in the 1960s. He began prototyping the concept in the early 1970s and in 1975 Nyle completed his first playable electric valve instrument- the 'Steiner Horn'. A woodwind version (EWI) was developed soon after.
Who is Richard Souther?
Well you could Google my name at this point. Or I could just copy and paste a Wikipedia biography that somebody graciously put up about me years back, but its gives you the impression that I left the life of music sometime back. I never left. I've had an extraordinary musical life. And even though it's been under the radar to a great extent, I will write music till my last day.
