Syrinx & the Toronto Repertory Orchestra – “Ibistix”

In Memoriam for Alan Wells, percussionist for Syrinx who passed away Nov 3, 2010. The founding members of Syrinx were Alan, John Mills Cockell, synthesizers and keyboards, and Doug Pringle, saxophones.

Syrinx was a Canadian electronic music group active from 1970 to 1972. Propelled by the electronic music compositions and keyboards of John Mills-Cockell, the group broke musical ground with their innovative use of the Moog Synthesizer and their world music inspirations. Their song, “Tillicum“, received national attention as the theme music for the television series Here Come the Seventies.
