Which of course brings in Robert Fripp and his so-called Frippertronics setup - two revox A77's on a long board that allowed them to be varied in distance. A tape was the run between the two machines, feed reel on A77-1, take-up reel on A77-2; or a tape loop was then fitted for that distance and recorded onto during performance.

A77-1 recorded his guitar. The bias erase head was disabled sometimes. Plus a split from the playback of A77-2. Massive delays and overlays.

A77-2 played back the sounds of the recording. The split was controlled via a foot volume pedal so that the split could be cut and a new layering created.

Eno's Ambient 1 was a favourite from this time.

Also Tangerine Dream - Phaedra

Rick Wakeman - Journey to the Center of the Earth; not so much experimental but very well crafted and amazing synth sounds for the time.
