Equinoxe III Cover On Elka Organs

Sunday Synth Jam: This video, via organfairy, is a cover of the Jean Michel Jarre classic Equinoxe III on vintage Elka organs.

Here’s what Organfairy has to say about the cover:

The Preludio 22L shares some of it’s technoloy with the more famous X-705. And since Jean Michel Jarre used the X-705 for some time in the late 1970’s I thought it could be fun to play one of his compositions while I had this old thing fired up.

The only part of Equinoxe III that I couldn’t play on the Preludio was the string parts because it doesn’t have a phase modulator. For the string parts I therefore used the EP-8 instead.
