Peter Zinovieff passed away on June 23, 2021. If you’ve never heard of him, you’ve at least heard the synth his company (EMS) created. Everyone in the 70’s and onward used it (Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream, Pink Floyd, the Who, Jean Michel Jarre, Aphex Twins, Chemical Brothers, Brian Eno, Hawkwind, Led Zeppelin). Here’s his Obit from Sound on Sound: https://www.soundonsound.com/news/peter-zinovieff-1933-2021
I saw a “reunion” of Roxy Music in LA in like 2000. I thought it would be terrible, but it was good. Instead of Eno there were two women, and each was playing a VCS3. It was pretty cool.
Hmmm…here’s the concert from 2001: Roxy Music live At Apollo, London 2001 - YouTube VCS3’2 show up around 11:10 to 12:45 ish.
I saw the notice on KVR, was saddened to read it. I love the sound(s) of the VCS3.
thank you Peter!
Ryuichi Sakamoto: async at the Park Avenue Armory - YouTube, a VCS2 (I guess) at 2:02ish minutes
