Writer’s note: This photo essay is dedicated to electronics pioneer, Dave Smith. Smith created MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) and the Prophet 5 synthesizer – both of which revolutionized popular music and aided acts such as Kraftwerk, Flying Lotus, Michael Jackson, Hot Chip, Radiohead, Bon Iver, Dillon Francis, and Madonna. Dave passed of a heart attack while with family and friends attending Movement in Detroit this year.
