I've been involved with electronic music, synthesizers and keyboards
when I saw Emerson, Lake and Palmer in concert at the University of Alabama.
I played lead jazz trumpet in the UofA Jazz Ensemble while there,
and for years before that, but taught myself on keyboards from that point on.
"Warming up" Keith Emerson's setup, January 1974 in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
Being involved with synthesizers during those early days was
and I went through a lot of equipment even then!
Below is a photo of my setup with 12 keyboards on stage during a
band-playing interval in 1978.
Doing the "Emerson ribbon controller bit" in a club, back in 1978.
A few years back, I had the opportunity to acquire an ex-Mike
Mellotron / Novatron Mk. V
(one of two that he had at that time, and one of the 29 Novatron Mk.V's made!) -
I recently sold this instrument to a collector in Italy
- sorry to see it go,
but he made me an offer I couldn't refuse!
Mike autographed the instrument for me in Orlando, November
1995, during a
dinner sponsored by Higher and Higher magazine -
quite the gentleman, with great things to say.
For the comprehensive Mellotron site, refer to Dave Kean's Mellotron Home Page.
My own studio is shown here: Village Studios
I am also looking for the following equipment to add to the studios.
Please Email me if you have anything listed or know where it might be available. Thanks!
