Note: The Stylophone






[Note 2010-02-26-1] “I was carrying with me a little instrument from the ‘60s” – said Sanders in Experimenting with Sappho’s poetry. The device Sanders describes could well be a Dübreq Stylophone, an early portable electronic synthesizer. In ‘’1968: A History in Verse [p.209] he recalls buying just such an instrument in Montreal on Sept 15, 1968. He indicates this as the beginning of the Electronic Bard System effort.
