Emulator II


Alan Wilder was born into a neither “rich nor poor” family and was raised in Acton, west London. He began piano at the age of eight, through the encouragement of his parents. Later on, he learned the flute at St Clement Danes Grammar school and became a leading musician in his school bands. He was influenced musically at school by Ted Ing, a percussionist. Alan and Ted formed Cloaca, a band which played many gigs in the west London area supporting the likes of Gary Numan’s ‘Tubeway army’ and ‘Henry Strand and the Westway Band’ featuring The Clash’s Mick Jones and Joe Strummer. After school, Alan worked as a studio assistant at DJM Studios. This led to him ending up working for bands such as The Dragons, Dafne and the Tenderspots (as Alan Normal), Real to Real (featuring Adrian Chilvers on Bass, Pete Fresh on guitar, Wolfgang Marlander on Drums and Paul St. James Vocals), The Hitmen, and The Korgis, appearing on the UK #13 single “If I Had You” (1979).

    Lugnt, metodiskt och pedagogiskt. E II utbildning med Christmas Island som spelexempel borde ingå i alla musikkurser.

    Jag hade lätt köpt en DVD där Alan bara sitter och pratar om hur de gjorde låtar, snackar ljud och synthar med mera.
