UNRELEASED EXPERIMENTS FROM THE DAWN OF ANALOGUE SYNTHESIS

The inventor of the revolutionary EMS VC3 electronic synthesizer is set to release unheard tapes of his early experiments with the device.

Peter Zinovieff first developed the device in a garden shed in Putney, where many of these early experiments were recorded.

The device was the first portable synth device of its time, and became widely used by a wide array of ground breaking musicians, including David Bowie, Pete Townsend and, later, the Chemical Brothers.

'The Electronic Calendar: The EMS Tapes' is a 21 track collection featuring Zinoveiff’s early experiments with the instrument, and provides a fascinating insight into the device that formed the backbone of so many sounds that we now know and love.

Zinovieff, 82, is still composing electronic music - let us assume that he's since moved out of his old garden shed in Putney.
