The New Sound of Music (1979)
Posted by Scott
Fascinating BBC doc on history of recorded music featuring a whole lot of EMS synths including the Synthi 100 “Delaware” modular system (pictured below). Fun Fact: Years ago I had the opportunity to buy a Synthi 100 system in beautiful condition for a very reasonable price. For reasons I can’t explain now, I passed on it. Honestly, it would have been a nightmare to maintain and very impractical, but look at that thing. I still regret the decision every time I see a picture of a 100. These days my synth acquisition pace has slowed quite a bit, mostly just holding out for a Memorymoog LAMM and a Prophet 5, then I’ll be done.

If you enjoy that cozy, mysterious analog synth sound done by “BBC Radiophonic Orchestra” folks back in the day, I suggest checking out “Belbury Poly” and some other stuff of “Ghost Box” record label.
