From the Library — Classic Electronica

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:
