This Casio CZ-5000 Demo Is The Bullet Train To Synth Town

We’re not sure what we just saw – but the 80’s-tastic soundtrack is like the bullet train to synth town.

This video pairs a soundtrack, by Lazzarus, with the animated Gandahar by René Laloux (1988).

All the sounds come from a Casio CZ-5000 Phase distorsion synthesizer (1985), a big brother of the CZ-101 mini-keyboard.

Lazzarus has clearly spent a lot of time on sound design on the CZ-5000, because, if you’re expecting cheesy CZ presets, you’ll be surprised.
