520    From Dr Who to The Dark Side of the Moon to modern day 
       dance music, the pioneering members of the Electronic 
       Music Studios radically changed the sound-scape of the 
       20th century. What the Future Sounded Like tells the 
       fascinating story of British electronic music. In postwar 
       Britain, musician and composer Tristram Cary was using 
       materials left over from the war to experiment with 
       electronic music. Uninhibited, anything went with regard 
       to the sounds he invented. He also moonlighted as a 
       composer for pop cult films like The Ladykillers and the 
       seminal television series Dr Who. In the 1960s an exiled 
       Russian aristocrat Peter Zinovieff, borrowed money from 
       his rich British wife to purchase two military grade 
       computers. Costing as much as a house at the time, he used
       them specifically for his personal experiments in 
       electronic music. But it was his collaboration with music 
       engineer David Cockerell that helped revolutionise 
       electronic music. By the end of the 60s, Cary joined 
       forces with Zinovieff and Cockerell to establish EMS 
       (Electronic Music Studios). EMS was the most advanced 
       computer-music facility in the world. They created 
       incredible sounds for films about nuclear power reactors, 
       adverts for early Olivetti computers and for the British 
       Pavilion at the 1967 World Expo. Played back today this 
       early electronic music still arouses wonder at its 
       creation and power. EMS's great legacy is the VCS3, 
       Britain's first synthesizer and rival of the American 
       Moog. The VCS3 was a uniquely British invention used by 
       some of the most popular artists of the time including: 
       The Who, Pink Floyd, Roxy Music and David Bowie. Almost 30
       years on, the VCS3 is still used by modern electronic 
       artists like Aphex Twin and Radiohead.
