No one cares, no one sympathizes,
so you just stay home and play synthesizers.

In "The Stu-Stu-Studio" with Roger Joseph Manning Jr. One of my favorite musicians. He writes amazing songs and plays his a*s off for every artist under the sun!

This photo was most likely taken during the early stages of his third solo album "Rainbow Delta", circa late '78.

Nice closeup. The "Rainbow Delta" album is my personal favorite.

Image
Apocalypse Now soundtrack sessions, circa spring '79.

Another shot from the AN sessions, spring/summer '79. In the background we can see two single-keyboard Prophet 10's and the keyboard controller
for the E-mu modular. The big boxy thing on the floor is the E-mu Blue Box semi-programmable 16-channel polyphonic synthesizer (the Grandfather
of the Audity). This synth was also controlled from the E-mu polyphonic keyboard but not used on the soundtrack.
Some great shots of this setup on the DVD "Apocalypse Now -Redux". As well as other nice vintage Moog modular stuff in Coppola's workshop studio. Worth the buy just for that soundtrack details which is one of the very best of all time IMO.

Michael Hoenig (I don't know who he is..)

Michael Hoenig's "Departure from the Norhtern Wasteland" is a classic Berlin School synth album. One of the better efforts of the period and blows away most everything since. If you never heard it, it is well worth the effort to dig up a copy. Textbook sequences and incredible tone of the patches. This one stands the test of time - unlike other albums that tend to have a weak aftertaste to me nowadays.

Unfortunately, Hoenig ended up in the L.A. soundtrack rat race and put out some pretty putrid stuff for TV and video games. Paid well though so I can't blame him. He is an exceptional talent.

Other more serious earlier work was "Xcept One" and "Early Water" with Gottsching.
