This set of videos captures Alka’s improvisations on the EMS Synthi AKS Mk 1 analog synthesizer.
The EMS Synthi AKS has been in production, if only with extremely limited availability, since 1972. It’s notable for its suitcase design, matrix synthesizer patching and popularity with synth pioneers, including Brian Eno, Jean Michel Jarre and Pink Floyd.
Alka operates the Synthi A. Part 1 of 2.
