AN ENDURING LEGACY
The journey of crafting groundbreaking albums for some of the music industry's most influential artists began with Robert and Malcolm Cecil's prototype modular synthesizer, and a recording deal for Tonto's Expanding Headband named "Zero Time" which was released on Herbie Mann's label, Embryo Records.
Robert Margouleff embarked on his early career in audio production as a pioneer in the development of early synthesizers. After partnering with Malcolm Cecil, they created the mega-synth known as "TONTO" (The Original Neo Timbral Orchestra) which utilized cutting-edge instruments from the likes of Moog', ARP, and many others.
As a result of their teamwork, this monumental synthesizer led to their team's historic co-production of Stevie Wonder's "classic period" which is featured on The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time by Rolling Stone: #34 'Innervisions'(1973), and #59 'Talking Book' (1972).
Fast forward to the present day, this iconic synthesizer has undergone a recent restoration and now lives inside Studio Bell at The National Music Centre in Calgary, Canada.
