A British perspective...
7 October 2015 | by pmjbacon-10701See all my reviews

For one involved in this endeavour from the beginning; I am surprised to say the least how one sided this film is. Sure there are a few Brits, new kids on the block giving their six penny worth... but nothing of the HUGE contribution we made. The work of the Radiophonic workshop at the BBC founded in 1958, the contributors of which are legendary, so forgive me for mentioning the more famous ones the late Daphne Oram & Delia Derbyshire, co creator of probably the first commercially successful piece of Electronica; The Dr Who theme. The Musys studio in the 60's founded by father & daughter team the Zinovieff's; who later helped form EMS. They in turn built many innovate synths, large and small for the European market and kick started German interest, but barely got a mention. These were our hero's and quite independent of the rumblings the other side of the pond.

We were aware of Moog , but more his filter, a variation of which EMS had already developed. So much so that a friend owned the Moog rights outright in the UK until recently, when Don Buchla also came into public consciousness. There was no internet then and American music was not very popular, yet they failed to mention those that were; Phillip Glass, Terry Reilly, not to mention Tontos Expanding Headband. The US analogue synth industry crashed and burned in the early Eighties with the use of digital, in part trying to overcome Moogs filter patent and stability/tuning issues.

Then there was the influx of cheap Japanese gear, only notable for FM synthesis and the work of an American inventor. Fast forward to the notion that American company reintroduced the modular synth in 98, which Doepfer and British company Analogue Systems were doing in Eurorack format from the early nineties. The truth is out there... but at least good because analogue is back!
