Eric G - Conclusion (2001)

Eric G is Erik Grönberg, a composer of electronic music from Sweden, inspired by  Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream, Synergy and Vangelis
In 1979 he bought his first real synth - Roland SH-1000, which he still has. One might dismiss this synth as being a very simple preset synth, but in fact the Control Section is very capable. He learned everything about analog synthesis from this synth. In the early 80's he began expanding with a Roland RS-09 Organ/Strings, a Boss DR-55 and a Casio VL-Tone. Korg MS-10 and SQ-10 also made a serious addition. In the 80's, he composed and recorded loads of songs, like 25 full C90 cassette tapes. As time went and he could afford more equipment, he bought a Tascam 368 8-track cassette recorder, which he still uses. He recorded a few of his very best songs from 1978 to 1999, named the result "Conclusion" and sent the demo to several music magazines. In 2001 he started burning CD-Rs at home and sell them, and later, around 2007, SMD was willing to distribute them.
