Carl Matthews is still making excellent music but is mainly concerned with getting money from it rather than releasing CDs. You can hear some track examples at Yookamusic and Absolute Music, just a couple of places that spring to mind (there are many others).

Oh my goodness I have not seen that photo for a while!

I have to say though that I really enjoyed that gig, especially pulling all the fuse points out of the halls three phase unit so our stage lights worked to better effect!

I was supposed to go to the Klem dag festival the following year but I got collared into playing sax in a brass section and ended up doing stints of five to six nights a week on a tour which seemed to go on for years!

Anyway, the electronic side of things became a little lost and I never followed up my ambitions in that particular line of music… I kick myself every day!

… Actually, I still get twinges of getting down to a bit of recording even now, especially along the lines of “dragonhall” because I really love that track.

And wow.. twenty years ago?... So that’s how long it has taken me to grow this beard then!!

Was that the gig where Paul Ward played some Camel songs? Fond memories... Smile

Not sure, may well have been.

There were two Synthtasia events I think '91 and '92.

1991 was on Saturday 14th Sep.

I'm trying to recall the acts...

1991
Andrew Pinches
Paul Ward (actually it may well have been Sean D'Lear's band)
JD&Friends

1992
Corporation
Synthetik

Can anyone confirm/fill in gaps? I think Dave Thompson may have played one.

Well it is funny what you come across while checking out the web!

And hey; I remember all the names here, including Mr Dyson!... "Liverpool central hall" sometime in the 80's!
Although as Deadernest said, he never had much contact with me.

Anyway, it brings back some bloody good memories.

Andrew Pinches.


Kevin O'Neill rated you very highly Andrew. It would be good if you, Kevin, Carl Matthews and Gregor Truckell could be encouraged to make a return to the EM scene one day.

Must check his stuff out


Don's music was extremely light. Maybe be too light for some?

Now this one's a good one, yes Don Slepian went very New Age, then more into piano stuff.
The only album could recommend is Computer Don't break down as original LP or the Sonic Perfume Cd which has that music on it.

I just bought Sea Of Bliss by him after 20-odd years of not having it (originally bought on a cassette!). It's a unique piece of music that I recommend...

Very true, a few years ago Don was selling CDr's of his albums of most of his early cassette releases, in fact only Introspection and Sonic Perfume were properly released on Audion.

The rest just CDr's like:
Introspection, Electronic Music For The Rainbow Isle, Beginnings One, Beginnings Two & Sea Of Bliss.

I also have 2 cassettes I did not see on CD/CDr=Rhythm of life & Largos.
At the right time, new or old age they can all sound great.
