Animal anonymous

There are great demo songs in my new keyboard. When I don't know what to play, I listen to these pre-recorded songs. It gives me a lot of inspiration.

I think of the demo songs musicians. They have a worldwide distribution for the music they made: the songs are travelling in a keyboard, instead of a CD. You have to buy the keyboard if you love the demo song, it is expensive. I am wondering if compilations of demo synths songs do already exist. It has a real and interesting history.

Jean-Jacques Perrey was a demo musician, he used to work for Jenny's Ondioline. We know him. But who are the others? And why do they stay anonymous?
