electronic music from ....1958

Post by Rufus T. Firefly »



"In 1958, Philips tried to make "popular" electronic music.
For a couple of years "room 306" of the Philips laboratory in Eindhoven
was allowed to make records like this. It did not catch on.
You could say they were 30 years ahead of their time..."

Jazz was popular in the 50's, so a lot of opium was ingested. Leading to the term "mop head".

Spacey. I dig it.

It's disjointed, but I can't really fault it due to its age.

that is interesting but it is also very much not house or acid house or any of the distinct genres of electronic music that developed in the 80s and thereafter

There was quite a lot of strange electronic music in the late 50's, even in Finland. Bizarre to think.

Here's a classic from early 60's


And here's a real gem for electronic music maniacs, Kurenniemi & Pan Sonic!
