Boards of Canada's Two-fer!

Hi everyone,

Real treat this time around! Got to thinking about Boards of Canada, & here for all are their first two GREAT albums, Music Has the Right to Children and Geogaddi. If all electronic music was as cool and fun and masterful as BoC, what a world it would be!

Vladimir Ussachevsky's Electronic And Acoustic Works 1957-1972!

Hi everyone,

It's always good to dig into musical roots from time to time, & find someone inspiring to discover. Ussachevsky was a pioneer of electronic music. Here's what Wikipedia says:


In 1947, following a stint with the U.S. Army Intelligence division in World War II, he joined the faculty of Columbia University, teaching there until his retirement in 1980. Together with Otto Luening, Ussachevsky founded, in 1959, the Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center in New York City. While acting as head of the Electronic Music Center Ussachevsky specified the ADSR envelope in 1965, a basic component of modern synthesizers, samplers and electronic instruments.


And his music is great! Enjoy!

Birds of Prey's Vanishing Point!


Hi everyone,

This New York band is awesome, their new album great. They say it occupies "the space between sample-manipulated American tape music and the downward gaze of amniotic British bass music.” Deep dreaming music, for a puff, a vape, a lingering afternoon nap, shades down, or just groove low & move to it fine . . .
