Classic Electronica

in Daily Programme

From the Library — Classic Electronica

Today, Elrik Merlin presents a programme of classic electronic music from a wide range of artists ranging forward from the beginnings of the genre.

You’ll hear Wendy Carlos, the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, Dissevelt & Baltan, an IBM 7090 computer, Larry Fast’s Synergy, Kraftwerk and many, many more. You’ll even hear the hilarious sounds of Perrey and Kingsley, two of the earliest artists to use synths and recorded sounds for melodic, rather than abstract, ends.

Tune in for an astonishing variety of electronic and musique concrète sounds from both the popular melodic and abstract avant-garde ends of the electronica spectrum, from the 1950s to the 1980s (by and large).

Above: A Moog modular synthesiser, one of the most famous of the analogue synths, introduced in the late 1960s.
