Rare Chance To See Vince Clarke At His Studio

Motherboard.TV heads to his crib      19/03/10


Great piece from Motherboard.tv who take a trip up to Vince Clarke's up country studio retreat in Portland. His cabin is totally stuffed with analog synths - this documentary lingers over his massive collection, including the original Boss drum machine from the early Depeche Mode gigs.

A great quote when asked about the huge Roland System 100 - "how do you find these rarities? This I bought new - coz thats how old I am"

Cool video, well done. Nice to see that Vince likes Portland, Maine. I like the peace and quiet of Maine very much too.
