(October 2021)

After doing an interview with keyboard player Jean-Philippe Rykiel about his work with Jon Hassell, he was kind enough to send us these exclusive previously-unseen photos of the tour that they did together in Europe in 1985, which also included J.A. Deane (percussion) and Goran Vejvoda (guitar), including a flyer (above) and tour itinerary (below). The original source of the photos is Thierry Guillemin, who we are VERY grateful to.

Guillemin had these notes about the set up of the sound/stage too:

During this tour Goran played guitars but he had another task. All the sounds of Deane, Rykiel and Jon (and him) were sent to the desk and sent back to the other musicians so they could use them for sampling, looping, etc... Goran was also doing a global mix on stage for everybody.

For the FOH mixing, i had only a few lines: Goran's mix in stereo plus other sounds (Jon's trumpet and processing for example) so i could add them if i thought they were missing. I also took care of the recordings on PCM and backup on tape.
