Roger Powell was working for ARP when this album came out -- I've got a recording with booklet of him discussing how to use an ARP Odyssey from around the time this album was released.  (edit:  HA, I just saw the Jack Hertz comment on the ARP Odyssey!  Well, like-minded people follow the same paths sometimes, eh?....)  A couple of years later he created the Powell Probe, which was an over-the-shoulder keyboard interface thing for various synths that he could use in concert (before the age of microchips started making such things more feasible).  I was lucky enuf to have seen him perform many times with Rundgren, Utopia, and even with Bowie during his "Berlin" years.   He's not just a synth player, but an accomplished pianist/keyboardist as well.  My view is that Cosmic Furnace is his most experimental solo album, always have enjoyed this one.
