Description

Human And Electronic Musicians - Music From Mathematics

Issued originally in 1957, this is the first ever electronic music album. And the great thing is every track comes with a fine American spoken word introduction and description so you really know and understand what you're hearing. A marvelous and educational album, with all music written by doctors, presumably in white lab coats, working with primitive punch cards, magnetic tape and an IBM machine probably bigger than a three bed semi-detached house. This is historic, slightly odd and excellent.
