Synergy In-depth Biography

Beginning with the 1975 landmark Electronic Realizations for Rock Orchestra}, Synergy} explored the possibilities inherent in synthesizer/sequencer technology and digital-studio production techniques, resulting in some of the most inventive electronic music of the 1970s. It was mostly the work of synthesizer expert Larry Fast}, who also brought electronics to the mainstream by coordinating synthesized passages for dozens of pop acts during the 1970s and '80s, including Yes}, Peter Gabriel}, Meatloaf}, John Denver}, Barbra Streisand}, Hall & Oates}, Kate Bush}, Foreigner} and Randy Newman}.

Fast} grew up in West Essex, New Jersey and trained as a pianist and violinist before entering Lafayette College in Pennsylvania. After taking a few computer science courses, he became interested in synthesized music and began building his own primitive devices. He was introduced to Yes} keyboard player Rick Wakeman} during an interview for a local radio station, and soon interested the musician in his home-made instruments and customized versions of existing synthesizers. While in England to assist Yes} in the recording of 1974's Tales from Topographic Oceans}, Fast} gained a record contract as well, with Passport Records.

Recording as Synergy}, Fast} debuted in 1975 with Electronic Realizations for Rock Orchestra}. The album became a surprise favorite with progressive radio, and was hailed by synthesizer pioneer Robert Moog} as the most important recording to date using his Moog synthesizer. Soon after the album's release, Fast} was introduced to Peter Gabriel}, who had recently left Genesis} and was about to begin his solo career; Gabriel} recruited Larry Fast} to take care of synthesized effects for his first three LPs (each were self-titled). Gabriel's} success with the singles "Shock the Monkey,"} "Biko"} and "Games Without Frontiers"} gave Fast} a growing reputation as the man to hire for that contemporary sound; even while he recorded three new Synergy} LPs during the late '70s, Fast} worked with a variety of artists and appeared on tour with Gabriel}. He also provided the score for the original planetarium light-show known as Laserium, and moved into film work (About Last Night}, Planes, Trains and Automobiles}) during the 1980s. ~ John Bush, All Music Guide
