Vince Clarke

Vince Clarke was in Depeche Mode... then Yaz (or "Yazoo", depending on which side of the Atlantic you're on)... and then Erasure.  All good bands.

An interview.

Showing his basic technique, with a delightfully old (from today's perspective) computer with a sequencer. 

In the below footage, at about 4:16, regarding a wall-filling modular synth:

Interviewer: "And how do you come across these things? I mean, they're not so [easy] to find?"

Vince Clarke: "Well -- this I bought new. 'Cause, that's how old I am."

Also, in the above footage -- at around 0:40, check out the shot of the panning around his "synth workshop".  I would love to have that sort of setup...
