The EMS Synthi encourages the exploration of hidden depths.
This began as a back to basics session with the manual: starting from the very simplest of patches. Within an hour I was utterly and joyfully lost in a deep sea of synthesis.
This is my kind of instrument - essential and beguiling, it surprises and delights at every turn.

It’s probably all very self-indulgent, but isn’t that the point of making music, to create something personal? Agree or disagree? It’ll make little difference to me as I’m already looking forward to my next date with the Synthi.
Swipe for a second minute of cosmic synth noodling - there’s an hour and a half of this on our #instagramstory live for anyone who wants to hear the full exploration...
