1970's Experimental Electronic Music

I became in love with these types of electronic music after listening to a few songs.









What do you guys think?

Re: 1970's Experimental Electronic Music

David Bowie's Low was what got me into electronic music. Him and Brian Eno collaborated on some really great ambient pieces on that album. Another favorite is no pussyfooting.

Kraftwerk seem so much ahead of their own time. I'm still amazed at the types of sounds they got way back then. Some of the modern remixes they did of their own stuff was pretty good too.

Which of course brings in Robert Fripp and his so-called Frippertronics setup - two revox A77's on a long board that allowed them to be varied in distance. A tape was the run between the two machines, feed reel on A77-1, take-up reel on A77-2; or a tape loop was then fitted for that distance and recorded onto during performance.

A77-1 recorded his guitar. The bias erase head was disabled sometimes. Plus a split from the playback of A77-2. Massive delays and overlays.

A77-2 played back the sounds of the recording. The split was controlled via a foot volume pedal so that the split could be cut and a new layering created.

Eno's Ambient 1 was a favourite from this time.

Also Tangerine Dream - Phaedra

Rick Wakeman - Journey to the Center of the Earth; not so much experimental but very well crafted and amazing synth sounds for the time.

ah yes! I love that stuff too.

Although I haven't found much Kraftwerk that I like, it sounds a little too techy for me.

Re: 1970's Experimental Electronic Music

I'm not 100% sure when these guys started up but they make some insanely good krautrock electronic type stuff with a similar feel to all of that 70's stuff

Boredoms - ○ (yes that is the song title)

Re: 1970's Experimental Electronic Music

Klaus dinger and michael Rother were leading lights in the 70's forming NEU, They used mainly conventional instruments,but in an unconventional way.
After they split dinger went on to form La dusseldorf who imho produced one of the greatest albums o the 70's

Re: 1970's Experimental Electronic Music

I LOVE Laurie Spiegel. But how many of you know Terry Riley?



Some more names:

Luc Ferrari, Alvin Lucier, Raimond Scott (inventor of many weird electronical instruments, dates back to 30's, so not really 70's), russian composer Edward Artmejev who did the music for Solyaris, Zerkalo and Stalker, all of which are amazing, most of that perfomed on a wery rare one of a kind early electronical instrument whic red music from glass plates.

Kraftwerks earlier stuff is worth checking out. They were non-electronic band once, NEU, then they evolved into spacey krautrock and then the electronic age came:





AMAZING!



But if someone is into Krautrock, here are some names:

Ash Ra Tempel
The Cosmic Jokers

Both projects of the beloved Klaus Schultze.

Re: 1970's Experimental Electronic Music

Damn, that Laurie Spigel composes some prime pot-smoking music... Just like Riley haha...

Telex are funny. I don't like synthpop, even in the experimental state, with exceptions for, well, the gods themselves Kraftwerk as well as Gary Numan.

That's funny. I discovered Justice and Boys Noize playing GTA4.

But I also found out about Philipp Glass, Terry Riley and Gary Numan playing either GTA4 or Vice City... Damn the music in San Andreas sucked...

Anyways, sorry for getting outta topic!

Edit: Yeah it's 80's, but it's awesome!



This is way awesome.



And, is that just rocks, altough it's almost totally outta topic... It's repetitive loops, it's minimalistic, it's good, whatever, I embed.

Re: 1970's Experimental Electronic Music

Oh yeah, look out that Glass tune. Now that it played in Watchmen, it's gonna be the next Lux Aeterna.

Ya know, that tune that everybody calls Requiem for a Dream and that just spells E.P.I.C. in every of it's note?

I just got into Yellow Magic Orchestra, they've got some lovely early electro sounds and their Japanese background shines through so clearly in their melodies. It reminds me of king fu games on the NES.

Re: 1970's Experimental Electronic Music

How experimental are we talkin' about?

I'm thinkin' about experimentin' to some of these riddims, maaaaaanngg. . .

And that might be gay, but that's okay, 'cuz in the seventies it's coool, manngg. . .

Pretty sure this Lonny Liston came on Vice City, but I reckon it's experimental enough.



I reckon the Dexter Wansel tune was from his first few LP's, but eventually he became extremely mainstream (which was fine, he never really lost his touch). Without these guys, our music would be way too. . .uh. . .How can I put this effectively. . .Anglo.

Major props to some of the videos down there, though!
