The EMS Synthi AKS was introduced in 1972 as a portable analog synthesizer, used in many avant rock & electronic settings; on Spielgelungen both Jean-Marc Foussat and Thomas Lehn perform on the Synthi, their adept skills and experience with the instrument in free improv highlight both their incredible creative drive and the flexibility of the AKS.

"Jean-Marc Foussat is a real character who, in an interview, admits to having created a label to listen to his music rather than to sell it, like a jazz columnist officiates, for love of writing more than in the often vain hope of to be read. Jean-Marc was also a sound engineer for prestigious labels like Hat Hut Records, without remuneration except to receive the albums, as a columnist. It is therefore no coincidence that so many great musicians like to meet him, from the American Joe McPhee to Jean-Luc Cappozzo or Urs Leimgruber.

JM Foussat plays the AKS synth, an analog synth which appeared in the 1970s with a keyboard and sequencer which it accompanies by vocal effects. Among the latest productions of the dynamic label ... A musician of German origin, Thomas Lehn plays both piano and synth, dedicating himself to free improvisation as well as to contemporary music. He has worked alongside Phil Minton (voc) as Radu Malfatti (tb), and has recorded with Urs Leimgruber (Lausanne), Gerry Hemingway (Kinetics) and John Butcher (The clawed stone). Like JM Foussat, he is on the AKS synth, here also in an atmosphere which starts from the thrill to develop towards tonic spaces. An album intended for lovers of electronic music and free improvisation." - Claude Loxhay
