[Brian was asked if he could help identify what a particular sound was in the opening to the concert – SEE LETTERS]
Ha ! I wish I could remember. I know the sound you mean .. an earth-moving roar like a Star Cruiser taking off ! Well, we were playing around all the time with some of the first analogue polyphonic synthesisers at that time … it was very timely, because we were able to build some great new soundscapes for the Flash Gordon film. So I think this sound was probably generated with an Oberheim OBX.
