Great BBC documentary from 1979 following the development of recorded music, from the earliest barrel organs through to analogue synthesizers and electronic music. As an added bonus for my fellow Whovians, there are a couple of segments showcasing the technology behind the making Doctor Who’s sound effects and theme song! Part 1, shown above has some great footage of early player pianos; those of you who have followed us for a while know we are fans of the player piano. Links to the rest: Part 2 Part 3 Part 4
This month, we at Quelab are exploring all things audio. Circuit bending, electronic music making and more. Stay tuned!
