GRS VCO.3 and H.R. Giger

via Nikos-Greece

"a picture I found in a Taschen book about the famous Swiss artist H.R. Giger.(see "Alien" and ELP'S "Brain Salad Surgery" cover) Well, in the picture, you can see behind the couple(?) the rare Italian synth GRS VCO.3. According to "A-Z of Analogue Synths" by Peter Forrest,only 30 of them were made,and it is reported that it was a great sounding synth. So maybe in the 'famous users list' of A-Z, could be added this couple of engineers. An (Eminent) Solina can be seen also, under the VCO.3.

You can also find a photo of the GRS VCO.3, in Sequencer.de site, as it's featured in the swiss synth "Synthorama" collection."

  3. He doesn't look like an alien.

    Doesn't even have bad skin.

    How odd!

  4. I just picked up a limited edition Giger lithograph of ELP IX, an early trial of the ELP Brain Salad Surgery cover for a decent price. Big Giger fan of his more industrial works.
