S is for Synthesisers
Eddie Piller & Matt Berry
Synthesiser, Prog, Soundtracks, Library Music, Film & TV
Matt Berry & Eddie Piller host an occasional series of specials here on TWR. They share a love of the music of the synthesiser but both grew up viewing the instrument from different perspectives, Matt from the traditional ‘rock and prog’ sound while Eddie concentrates on its influence on soul and funk. Taken together the concept works brilliantly and Matt (who has a collection of dozens of classic and rare synths) imparts some of his knowledge of the instrument’s history and development from the late 60’s through Jean Michel Jarre and Gary Numan right up to Heaven 17.
