“The Boys” – on Elka X-1000

November 12, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized 

Very little info can be found on this machine, but here is a short description found on Ebay:

This is an extremely rare Elka C series X1000 Drawbar organ, multi synth, mono synth, real-time Arranger and 8 track sequencer. This was the flagship keyboard produced by Elka in the 90’s. It was expensive, exceptionally comprehensive, and has an amazing, huge powerful sound. There is little information available about this model but it is in excellent working condition together with it’s original flight case style casing. The instrument is divided into 8 real-time sections

Background video description:

Moving to another house often means that you find things you had forgotten about. I found a little wooden toy – a sort of monocular with a lens that splits everything you see into many small pictures instead of one big. I cut the eye hole a bit bigger so it could slide over the lens on my camera and then I took some videos of the colourfull Elka organ. Then I added some video taken through a kaleidoscope to complete the psychedelic madness.

The melody is also played on the Elka X-1000. It is a song called “the Boys” and was originally performed by Danish singer Kim Larsen in the early 1980’s.
