R.I.P. John Hurt

John Hurt was a much-loved figure around the world, and particularly here in Electronic Sound’s home city of Norwich, where he was chancellor of the Norwich University of the Arts.

So here’s our little tribute to the man, from the 1978 film ‘The Shout’, in which he played the character Antony Field, a sound artist with an electronic music studio stuffed with EMS kit. Keep your eye out for the EMS VCS3s, a Synthi Sequencer 256 and the Vocoder 2000.
