Peter Beyls 1974

In 1974 Belgian composer Peter Beyls was not only a technician at the STEIM-studio in Amsterdam but also a teacher at the Vrije Akademie Psychopolis at Den Haag. Hero Wouters was a movie-making "paticipant" (a sixties-word for student) at the Academy, picking up some easy money as a technical assistant in the electronic-and-film-music-studio. They decided to join forces and gave in 1974 and 1975 two series of concerts, "Transformation" and "In Concert", mixed-media performances consisting of live electronic music, tapes, films and slides.

One of these events (Studio Skoop, Gent, rehearsal at the IPEM, november 29 and 30 1974) was filmed by Psychopolis-student Jacques Tooten, and the material was edited by Hero Wouters in the same year. Projected during this concert were his movies "A Boy's Ballad (Hero Wouters Movie nr 32), "On the Origin of Species by means of Natural Selection" (HWM 64), "De Zogenaamde Zeetrein" (HWM 65) and "Prints" (HWM 25), fragments of which can be seen in this reportage.

Interesting are the use of two EMS VCS3's, communicating through a very long tape-delay-loop, and a platform built by Beyls to control (with hands and feet) his "kraakdoos" (a famous STEIM-synth design).

Music: "Dialoog voor twee Synthesizers & Tape-transport" opus 103 (Beyls / Wouters) and two Peter Beyls-pieces for VCS3, tapes and kraakdoos. HWM nr 66.

David Cockerell (EMS) 2008



http://www.namm.org/library/oral-history/david-cockerell

David Cockerell designed one of the earliest synthesizers produced in the United Kingdom. The Synthi was introduced in the late 1960s by EMS Ltd. The unit, which came in a case with a KS keyboard, used patch cords to root reverb and ring modes. David also included two oscillators both with shape and level controllers as well as a frequency control. The design marked the beginning of many contributions to the industry over the years including his work on guitar effects pedals for Mike Matthews in the 1980s.

EMS Videosizer / The Putney



Click on picture to view the video!

"This video was created by using an EMS Videosizer which is fed with musical information in order to produce and treat color, shape, lightness and contrast of the visual information.Pete Namlook is a purist. He never wanted to release a video with grinning musicians fuzzing around with their instruments or 3D animation which has not the timeless quality. More Important is the direct connection to the music.Visuals not as an explanation of the sound but more an enhancement and intensification of the overall musical experience. Operator at the machine was Ludwig Rehberg except Video 1 (Pete Namlook)"
