<< 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! >>

in that same sort of vein, douglas leedy`s "entropical paradise" is a great
b∗∗∗∗∗ record. for non-synthesizer e.m., IMHO, stockhausen`s "kontakte" and
"gesang der jungeling" ( song of youths ) are two of the finest pieces ever
done ( both from the late 50`s/early sixties ). there were lots of neat e.m.
records ( remember those ? ) out in the sixties......the 2 columbia princeton
records had many pieces, mostly in a "classical" e.m. style that were very
good. varese`s "poem electronique", composed as the sound enviroment to a
building at a worlds fair is pretty amazing.
