in order to understand the current climate of shit electronic music, it is necessary to explore the evolution of experimentation with invented objects, we know now as 'keyboards' and before anybody heard of kraftwerk, there was a small movement of composers who took the leap head first into the bitmapped world of gadgets.  Raymond Scott along with J.D. Robb and Robert Moog paved a new mentality on how our apocalyptic situation reflects the beauty and awe that we have for machines.  although relatively rudimentary in design and construction, using known components, these composers showed how through delicate manipulation, the idea of the composition evolved.  In Raymond Scott's 'Manhattan Research' the full range of otherworldly blips and glitches find their place.  in both mind and body, i bring you men at work.
