In whose synth studio would you like to be fly on the wall?

Post by D-Collector » Sat Mar 08, 2014 9:22 pm

If you had to pick only one! Any period, session, producer / artist, whatever.

I'm thinking Jan Hammer, 84-88. Sooo many nice tunes coming out of that little studio in the woods! I would love to see how he did it all!

Closest runner ups:

Trevor Horn at Sarm studios / FGTH period!
Faltermeyer 84-88.

Teddy Riley between 1987 - 1991. But he moved around a few times between then so it could be a few different places.

Vangelis - any year!

Beeb Radiophonic Workshop - anytime during the 60s or 70s, but especially when Delia was working.

Yeah, I'm googling my buns off and it aint in the results.
It's a top down shot of her in the middle of the room.

Looks pretty insane and she has some music out too..
From what I remember she's actually quite productive compared to some of the negative comments I've seen about the pic.

Definitely my Number 1. A close second would be SARM West from about 1982 to 1986 - Art of Noise, Pet Shop Boys, Frankie and many more...
Fairlight IIx (Mid-Life Crisis - cheaper than a Corvette!)
Roland JP-8, D-50, S-50, S-550(2x), S-760(2x), JX-3P, JD-800
EII, Emax II, Minimoog, ARP 2600, P-5 Rev.1 (broken...), Pro-One, Crumar Performer, K1m, K5m, MS-2000B, Virus KC, a few other things.

awww - I can't choose just one!

OK - if I had to ... it would be Jean Michel Jarre

Then here is my list of the rest that I'd love to see:

Vangelis
New Order
Depeche Mode
Georgio Morodor
Kraftwerk
NiN
Peter Gabriel
Laurie Anderson
Robert Miles
... I can't stop typing ... so there's more ..

As a fly on the wall you cannot interfere! :shock:

I feel the same way, of course you would like to watch everyone. But you only get ONE!! ;)
Jarre is also high on my list, so is CJ Bolland 89-94, Mantronix, Dolby, Yello, Howard Jones, and on and on.

Nice varied choices by everyone! I would click "like" on all of them if I could. :D
