Pi Corp

The Pi Corp studio band consisted of Cleveland musicians Alan Howarth, Guy Bickel, Denny Geffert, Brian Risner, Woody Leffel, and a very memorable one-time appearance by drummer Rick Fischer. They began their three year mission as Earthman Enterprises located at 59th and Euclid Ave, then later moved to the Pi Corp Studios across the street from the old Agora Ballroom on 24th St.

“The original Pi Corp music created in the 70’s was later reflected in many of the Hollywood soundtracks I wrote in the 80’s. Starting with “Escape from New York”, I collaborated with John Carpenter on all of his movies in that 80’s period. You’ll hear Pi Corp musical styles in the soundtracks of Christine, Big Trouble in Little China, Prince of Darkness and They Live. Our Pi Corp sessions were very cinematic, as we listen back to them today. Many of the Pi sessions contain experimental sounds that were to become the foundations for sound effects I created for Star Trek, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Poltergeist, the Little Mermaid and The Hunt for Red October,” quotes Howarth.
