Electro-Music Goes East!
One result of E&MM's recent questionnaire showed that over 60% of its readers wanted an interview published with Jean-Michel Jarre (it was the most popular request taken from 1000 entries). It's been quite a squeeze getting the information into one issue, but with that high rating we felt we had to oblige! Nevertheless, there's more to come for practical musicians in the way of a complete electro-music transcription of a piece from the new album.
Following many enquiries from home/small studio users, we start a new series: 'Studio Sound Techniques' that gives plenty of practical information on maintaining and using recording equipment.
This month's projects are real low cost musician's accessories. The Panolo was inspired by the Yamaha Electric Grand 'Tremolo' effect, with some additional influence from the Kraftwerk and Jarre concerts.
The Multisplit has numerous uses and although it's an easy project to construct, its commercial counterpart is hard to find.
The Electric Drummer has caused a tremendous amount of interest over the past months. Information regarding the new stereo sound generator board, controls, EPROM and general operation will be published in the next issue.
Next month, we'll be meeting French singer Ronny, accompanied by the all-electronic drums of Warren Cann and Hans Zimmer's original 'Switched-On Bach' Moog.
