Here are some vintage clips featuring use of the Fairlight CVI.
The following videos are credited in the Fairlight CVI Entertainer Manual:
Crowded House – Now We’re Getting Somewhere (1986)
A Flock of Seagulls – Who’s That Girl? (1985)
Jean-Michel Jarre – Zoolookologie (1985)
Oscar (Sky Mitchel) Lariosa – I’m Just an Alien
Other videos that we’re pretty sure used Fairlights (although please let us know if you know otherwise):
Electronik Supersonik – from Aussie comedian Santo Chilaro. If it’s not a real CVI doing the effects, it’s at least a good parody of the tackiness of CVI effects.
Severed Heads – Dead Eyes Opened (1984) – maybe Fairlight CVIs, but also possibly hand-built video synthesisers, as pioneer AV artists Severed Heads built their own equipment in the 70’s and 80’s.
