From the Library — Classic Electronica

in Daily Programme

by Elrik Merlin on Monday, 30 November, 2009

Today, Elrik Merlin presents a programme of classic electronic music from a wide range of artists including 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.

From the Library is produced in conjunction with the Alexandrian Free Library Consortium, and today’s programme is presented by Elrik Merlin. For more about the work of the Consortium, please click here. You can listen to today’s programme on our Main Stream as follows:
