My music inspirations

Hi! I'm Martin Paul Gardiner

Electronics and software development engineer and founder of GSA Golf simulators

While I'm not working on golf simulators I'll be working on my other passion - electronic and jazz music

Back in the 70s and 80s I used to run the London (UK) synthesizer studio in Denmark Street just off Shaftsbury Avenue

where I met and dealt with all the big time musicians of the time including

Yes, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, ELP etc, etc

Denmark Street is a tiny street in London but full of great music instrument stores and a mecca for all rock musicians in the UK.

My interest in electronic music started with the Moog modular system

The mighty modular Moog captured all my facination

The all time best original "Switched on Bach" album from 1967

How it all started and how GSA Golf came to be

The above videos are all done using systems from a company in Texas that makes replica modular Moog systems

Ryan Farish is one of my all time favorites in techno electronic music.

The guy's absolutely brilliant and a true master of the art. The above video is just a small sample of his talent.

The change at 3:10 of the above video is awesome.

I'm also a bit of a car

I love comedy too

My comedy

Me on a friends yacht

I myself don't actually own a yacht but I do have an inflatable Kayak

Just have to watch out for those pesky sharks here in Florida with their sharp teeth

otherwise I'll deflate big time and they'll have me for lunch.

BTW, here's my new car.

As you can see, I'm on a bit of a budget
