In the Synthesizers and Electronic Keyboards Handbook by David Crombie, there is a picture of someone who allegedly is a member of TD. I have been trying for years but I just can't figure out who this is supposed to be, and whether it actually is TD at all. The keyboard setup does look vaguely Froesian (ARP 2600, ARP Solina String, Rhodes) but...

I take it this is neither Peter Baumann nor Steve Jolliffe nor anybody else from the crowd, is it?

But... who is it? Any clues?

Stephen

I'm pretty sure it has nothing to do with TD. The picture looks familiar, but I don't know where I've seen it before. It might have been in Sonic Report.

I'd place it in the early 80's. Given that the book is from '85 that seems likely.

Google didn't return anything b.t.w.

Wouldn't fit in -- Schroyder left the group around the time of Zeit, and this picture must have been taken in the late 1970s (telling from the instrumentation).

But he could be Steve in the late 70s. Even he could be a completely unknown electronic musician instead of a TD member.

Telling from the pictures that are around of Schroyder, I tend to say there is no semblance between the one above and all the others. Seems more likely this picture has nothing to do with TD at all.

But I am not Horatio Caine so what do I know?

None of us is Horatio Caine Smile

We're just a bunch of electronic music maniacs...

Perhaps members of the Zest TD group on Facebook (Andy King et al) will know.

I would love to help but I don't know the book. Do you perhaps have a scan of the photo?

I see the picture now. I am sorry but I am afraid this musician is not known to me.

have seen this picture many moons ago, it may be from a press clipping/advert. but it must be from the 80's as the unknown person is waving a neon tube around. Posing with neon tubes is definitely 80's.

Oh right, yes I see it now. And no, I'm afraid I also don't recognise that face.

Padded shoulders and pastels however...
