Subtitled: Music From The Pioneers Of Electronic Sound.
"With electronic music's current resurgence and interest in the form at an all time high, this superb 2CD set, containing compositions and original recordings by the pioneers of this fascinating style of sound, compiled here for the first time, is certain to attract enormous excitement amongst fans of the genre.
Featuring tracks recorded largely in the 1940s, '50s and '60s, from names as diverse as the ever popular John Cage, Frank Zappa's idol, Edgar Varèse, Sergeant Pepper cover star Karlheinz Stockhausen and even Auntie herself in the form of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop (unlikely contenders perhaps, but nevertheless leaders in the development of sonic electronics], this compilation features the bizarre, the avant-garde, the experimental and even, on occasion, the fairly melodic. A treat for fans of contemporary names such as Joe Meek, Kraftwerk, Can, Tangerine Dream, The Prodigy, Throbbing Gristle providing guidance on the roots of their chosen artist's muse, the potential market for this extraordinary collection is enormous."-Chrome Dreams
Featuring a 16-page illustrated booklet, and finished in deluxe slipcase packaging.
