SAMPLE & HOLD : morton subotnick

Without the use of a standard chromatic keyboard, Morton Subotnick's 1967 Silver Apples of the Moon and the next year's The Wild Bull are powerfully influencial examples of the emphatically expressive potential of early analogue electronic musical instruments. Listening to both of these works then we could hear an unknown future...Keith Fullerton Whitman's analogue synth explorations, Autechre's rythmic displacements, and Carlos Giffoni's analogue noise voyages among many...Morton Subotnick's early masterpieces are indeed classics! Thanks to Donald Buchla!
