Pink Floyd and EMS synthi’s

Rick Wright and Dave Gilmour of PINK FLOYD with EMS VCS3 and Synthi-A during the recording of “Obscured By Clouds”, France 1972.  Photo taken from “Their Mortal Remains”- Book.

The EMS synthi and AKS were also used on ‘Dark side of the moon’ and ‘Wish you were here’. Scroll down for a video showing part of the recording process, although it is now Roger Waters fiddling on the synth creating ‘On the run’.
