Fairlight CMI @ 40

Seminar at SynthFest UK 2019 By Rob Puricelli
Published November 2019

Filmed at SynthFest UK 2019, Fairlight CMI owner, enthusiast and some-time restorer, Rob Puricelli (aka Failed Muso), spoke about the 40 year history of this ground-breaking instrument, dispelling some myths, reinforcing others and demonstrating why this machine, 40 years ago this year, changed the way we make music to this day, and is as important to electronic music-making as the Minimoog.

After the history lesson, Rob was joined on-stage by Producer Steve Levine to talk about his extensive use of the Fairlight on many of his 80s hit records.

Duration 55 minutes
