Discovering Electronic Music...

by Chris Randall
 



MatrixSynth has probably already posted this, but if he did, I missed it. This is the fantastic Bernard Wilets film from 1983, Discovering Electronic Music. It is so fantasical awesome as to defy description. Break out the Klang. It is, of course, quite long. Above is part one. Part two is here, and part three can be found here. Special thanks to jdfan for bringing it to my attention.

Yeah, I figured. There's no way something like this would have escaped your attention!

Nah, I love Analog Industries. While I'm grabbing stuff of the net Chris is probably doing something more useful, like developing kick ass software or producing music, so...

I do miss HCGPF though. : )

The generation split in this is weird.

The analogue synth stuff was done in 1970, and was released as a 16mm film reel at the time, and the stuff with the Fairlight was added in the 80s for the video version.

A pissing contest, you say?

I still get about three emails a week from people saying "hey, have you seen this amazing series about electronic music?"
