Profile
Patrick Gleeson (born Nov. 9, 1934) is a musician, synthesizer pioneer, composer and producer, from California, USA. Gleeson began experimenting with electronic music in the mid-60s at the San Francisco Tape Music Center using a Buchla synth and other devices. In 1968, he bought a Moog synthesizer and opened recording studio Different Fur. He worked with Herbie Hancock in the early 70s, touring with Hancock – thus pioneering the use of synthesizers outside the studio – and appearing on the albums Crossings and Sextant.
