    Default Favourite Electronic Pieces/Works

    Don't think there is a thread on Classical Electronic music, from a quick search in the forum.

    What are some of your favourites? No popular artists like Daft Punk, Aphex Twin for this one.

    Here is an interesting intro with Babbitt.

    ^ I made a CD of the Subotnick for the car before. Didn't make good driving music. I'll try it with the others.

    Subotnick and Babbitt are on the "John Cage"-end of electronic music. There are many other examples which are not so, uh, "challenging."

    I loved that record, as well as Silver Apples of the Moon. There was some serious thought and musicianship to Subotnick's work.

    This was nominated for the Weekly Quartet last week, and I was impressed by its mellow, dreamy nature, with smoothly integrated contrasts. It sounds like a natural extension of the sensuous impressionist school that started with Debussy and ran through Dutilleux and Takemitsu.

    Favourite Electronic Pieces/Works:

    Of these I know very little.

    I like Deserts by Varese and some works by Mario Davidovsky which combine electronic elements with acoustic performance. I also think that Isao Tomita did some interesting things his electronic arrangements of works by classical composers, most notably Holst's The Planets and Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition. The concert pianist and composer, Yuji Takehashi recorded some interesting electronic arrangements of Bach on his album, The Electronic Art of Fugue, arranged for everything else, so why not electronics?

    Some wild wonderful ****. Please pardon my ignorance, but who IS this guy ? Love it !
    But if you're feeling a bit fraught after listening to it, try this -- another favourite of mine

    Just curious, how old are you roughly? I used to like stuff like that when I was younger, but don't have the stomach for it anymore.
