Below are photos of an unusual keyboard, the Optigan.
Mike Dewberry brought a very unusual "organ." The Optigan uses LP-sized transparent disks which are inserted in a hinged-opening just under the left side of the keyboard. The disks contain an optical track, like a film soundtrack, of "backing tracks, rythm arrangements and instruments." These are selected using the pushbuttons to the left of the keyboard. The melody is played on the keyboard. David White is the performer. (Details are from Peter Forrest's the A-Z of Analogue Synthesisers.)
