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.
