The interview was in the March 1983 issue of E&MM.

As I can see, it consisted of a SCI 700 programmer controlling various modules such as the EMU Audity, sequenced by a custom sequencer.

No, I was referring to the big custom sequencers built by Helmut Grothe.
But as I said, I can't confirm whether that info was correct.

Anyways, Chris Franke does mention in an interview from late '82 that at the time they were using the sequencers with the Jupiter-8 and PPG Wave 2.

Could you be talking about the EEH CM-4 digital sequencers ? I know Tangerine Dream used the EEH CM-1 & CM-4 Digital Sequencers.

Thats a great video of a fascinating performance.I would love to have been there!
I have never really fully embraced TD for some reason,the only album I have is "Tangram" which is great and a compilation of various parts of their career,which is not so appealing to me.Maybe I will research this early 80's period of their work and re-assess them now.

No I don't think so. But you're right, they did use the EEH CM-4 digital sequencers from '83 onwards.

I went through my library for the 1983 march issue of E&MM but couldn´t find it, maybe I don´t have it ( but I seem to remember having it ).

Do you have a scan of it ?

I can't find that one either from 1983, but there is the December 1984 interview from E&MM here:
http://www.arm.ac.uk/~ath/music/td/arti ... emm84.html

Here is a scanned interview from E&MM 1984 also:

It really just sounds like scraping a plectrum on a coiled guitar string, maybe slowed down. Or scraping something corrugated through some reverb. I reckon it's on tape.

Heh, yes could be :)

I mean I don't think it's a synth sound. If it is I'd like to know what as well!

sounds like a maraca sample slowed down, layered and modulated

Cool footage.... i have to wonder how much is "live", since this sounds exactly like a part of Logos iirc. Maybe he can do that whole section himself :shock:
