Beginnings of Electronic Music

Hi users

I would like to know what that electro music start

Closest to that of this, are the work of Morton Subotnick

I think that this is interesting, because how I know, this guy starting work in the decade of 60's, I say that we can considerate how a pioner about the electronic scene, and he start with "noise" music, base for continue the evolution of the electronic scene, see how many posibilities have the electronic elements to manipulate the sound.

What artists pioneers in electronic music know?
Which important events that have marked a change in this type of music?

Sorry for my bad english, I'm learning

Re: Beginnings of Electronic Music

check out Musique Concrete and Karlheinz Stockhausen for the high brow classical origins

also gotta give a shout out to Lee Scratch Perry he may not have been the first but he pioneered a lot of the techniques electronic music producers use today, The Upsetter documentary is well worth watching

Kraftwerk also did quite alot for electronic music, but that was a bit later.

Re: Beginnings of Electronic Music

Pretty sure one of the first early "electronic" performances was by Edgard Varese (arguably considered a father of Electronic Music). I think he played some recordings (in the Musique Concrete style, cut up and manipulated) through a massive array of speakers in a large theatre space (something like 100 or 200 speakers). But I think like what people are saying-- it was 'popularised' and coined as actual 'electronic' music in the 70's by bands like Kraftwerk etc.

Re: Beginnings of Electronic Music

Cripes, where to start. You want 150 years of electronic music pioneers?

If you want a good overview of 1948-1980, I heartily recommend this album:

amazon.co.uk/OHM-Early-Gurus-Electronic-Music/ amazon.co.uk/OHM-Early-Gurus-Electronic-Music/

I love this album because it contains music by experimental artists who are asking 'what can we do with sound', without caring about popularity, or even whether it's especially pleasant to listen to.

If you're serious about music (electronic or not), this album is a cornerstone of your collection.

Re: Beginnings of Electronic Music

In the beginning, man discovered he had a heartbeat - he called this "rhythm". Then, he began to holler at this accomplishment - he called that "tone". Then, he multiplied, devastated, consumed, manufactured machines, and today we have electronic music.

1840 was the first electronic instrument made or somewhere around that time. 1910 was the first synthetizer and before that had been oscs and stuff. I don't remember what I've read.

Re: Beginnings of Electronic Music

i'm with mctoast on that stuff too. some of the first electronic instruments were something like transformers humming or something like that. somebody figured it out and stuck them together into an instrument.... or something like that. I forget too.
