Hey Larry!

There's been a lot of talk about Subotnick on the list lately and I was
wondering if you'd ever heard of him? I've always been sort of ambivalent
about W. Carlos stuff. I do like Bach, and heard the album Switched On Bach
when it first came out (and liked it). But in a lot of ways it kind of
reminds me of Ferente and Ticher (sp?) and Esquivel for classical music fans!
Subotnick quickly started adding non-electronic instruments to his
recordings, but his early (late 60s) recordings like "Silver Apples of the
Moon" "The Wild Bull" and "Touch" show how EM can be used in non-traditional
ways to generate music. Maybe others can list a few pieces of EM that show
different approaches to music which might not be that be well known!

BTW, I was looking at Kev's site and saw the rear picture of a slanted Moog
cabinet and noticed that between the two rows there is a supporting piece of
wood -- BUMMER! See it here:
