He's not the only one, but Stephan Bodzin has a unique synth tone. I haven't tracked back to locate its origins, or its evolution, but I imagine him rearing and taming it like a wolfhound over many smoky decades, taking it for wild, meandering walks through the tundra.

Once you've found your synthetic groove, giving it space to wander and bound must hold some exhilaration, like coming across a weak but friendly god in the woodworking shed.

There are videos of Bodzin performing in alpine resorts, draped in mountain mist, exhalations of Bacardi, cool and very cold, his lead line baying without the need for a pack, just an audience, ampage, and all of it seen through a drone-lifted lens.
