From the documentary, “What the Future Sounded Like,” a documentary about Electronic Music Studios (EMS), a radical group of avant-garde electronic musicians who composed music using technology and futuristic experimentation:
Comprising of pioneering electronic musicians Peter Zinovieff and Tristram Cary (famed for his work on the Dr Who [sic] series) and genius engineer David Cockerell, EMS’s studio was one of the most advanced computer-music facilities in the world. EMS’s great legacy is the VCS3, Britain’s first synthesizer and rival of the American Moog. The VCS3 changed the sounds of some of the most popular artists of this period including Brian Eno, Hawkwind, and Pink Floyd.
This is a documentary in three parts: Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3. A recommended pairing with reading 2010: Living in the Future, the book, and a period-piece snack.
