Presentation Title:

  • Electronic Music Studios (EMS)



  • Peter Zinovieff will give a presentation on examples of the inventions of the Electronic Music Studios (EMS) including the now legendary VCS3 and Synthi A – the first portable music synthesisers ever to be produced commercially. For a time the British companies synthesisers (designed by Peter Zinovieff) rivalled the American Moog. Electronic Music Studios Instruments have been used by a broad variety of artists since the 1960’s and are currently going through something of a renaissance as they are rediscovered by a new generation of sonic experimentalists in the late 1990’s.
