I discovered today that the Volto! website now seems to be up and running, and featured on it is a piece written by Blair where he discusses Danny, Volto! and Synthesizers, in particular the Minimoog he sold Danny. The piece also contains a few answers to the recent quiz posted in the June Tool Newsletter: Over the many years since Danny purchased the Minimoog, its distinctive control panel has, for… Read More »Volto! and Minimoogs

Volto! reveal Incitare cover art, date and other details

In a followup post from the last one, Volto! have revealed the cover art for their debut album Incitare via Facebook, and without further ado: The comments with that image note that it’s the version from the CD and is Silver – I’m guessing this implies there may be other colours?
