Fast grew up in Livingston, New Jersey and attended Lafayette College in Pennsylvania, where he obtained a degree in History.
The shimmering electronic textures of the first SYNERGY album in 1975 led to an invitation for Larry to come to Europe and work with the distinguished British-German band Nektar, then enjoying top 20 success in the US. Following an album ("Recycled") and a tour with Nektar, Larry was contacted by Peter Gabriel who had recently left Genesis. Larry was asked to contribute to Peter's subsequent solo albums and tours.

Larry Fast is a rare breed. It was completely new recordings and wasn't done with Moogs this time. It was done with digital synths - mostly Kurzweil, Emu and a little bit of Roland gear. And yet the stylistic sound that I've had for my projects has stayed fairly consistent.
