Vince Clarke ‘Make Something From Nothing’

No, it’s not a new Erasure tune or solo track, but a philosophy that keeps the synth song writing machine percolating. This ‘Dell’ sponsored interview peers into Vince’s current home and studio called ‘the cabin’ way up in Portland, Maine. A room surrounded in perfectly mounted synthesizers becomes the envy of anyone who’s ever twisted a knob. The clip does a nice job touching upon some light history with Depeche Mode, Yazoo and the song writing process with Andy in Erasure. Towards the very end of the clip, Vince actually gets into some live programming on a Roland System 100 Modular synth sequencing a simple kick and snare rhythm. Kick it to full screen mode for maximum effect.
