“From SFX to Space Music” – DISCOVERING ELECTRONIC MUSIC [1983]

Here’s a fun (if basic) overview of electronic music production as it was seen in 1983, just before digital synthesis took over in the form of the Yamaha DX-7, and MIDI became standardized. This short film features many fine pieces of hardware, from the time-tested Moog 3P modular system to the then-new Fairlight CMI series II. Noted synthesist and composer Douglas Leedy (r.i.p.) is one of the featured performers, which is a special treat. Does anyone have any further information regarding the (Bell Labs?) computer synthesizer also within?
