Alan Sutcliffe EMS SYNTHI AKS IMPROV 1972 - 1973

A superb Limited edition (50 copies) 30 minute white cassette tape in soft plastic box with insert card featuring early computer graphics by Alan Sutcliffe. 
It was then that we were contracted by 20th Century Fox to provide computer graphics for Ridley Scott's ‘Alien’. Alan's key contribution was the terrain model for the landing site for the Nostromo space ship. We had a styrofoam model made and Alan digitised that for the 3D representation on the flight deck computer screens as the spaceship landed. A real complement to Alan's creation was a query we had from some intelligence agency in the US as to whether we'd had access to some of their on going work on terrain models because the screen representation was very similar to theirs (they said, but we heard no more)
George Mallen
