Product Information

Due early 2018...Under the alias of Zanov we find the works of French electronic pioneer Pierre Salkazanov, who had started playing guitar in the 1960s in a Shadows styled band, Les Ambassadors. Instrumental rock was not enough for Salkazanov, he was always looking to progress, so when a meeting with French synth player Serge Ramses (of "Secret" fame) got him into the world of synthesizers, he dived deep into the bourgeoning world of electronic music. He got himself an EMS VCS3 and started producing works on a 4-track Teac tape machine.

French music was at its best, it was the time of Jean Michel Jarre, Didier Bocquet, Richard Pinhas and Heldon, Alain Meunier. Gong's Tim Blake was living in France at that time too.

By the time of his second LP, Moebius 256 301, issued also on Polydor in 1977, Zanov had already gathered a small collection of gear, including an ARP 2600 and an ARP sequencer, his old VCS3, an RMI Harmonic and a PS 3300. He was again influenced by both the first and second generation of Berlin school musicians.

The LP will appeal to fans of Klaus Schulze or Tangerine Dream.

First ever vinyl reissue of Zanov's Moebius 256 301 under license from Pierre Salkazanov himself and with his cooperation.

Limited edition of 500 copies that reproduce its original artwork, has remastered sound and an 8 page insert with liner notes & photos.
