Two hours of exploring the wide world of early electronic music across the board. Featuring Morton Subotnick, Ralph Lundsten, and more.

For this edition of Sound Obsession, we delve in to the wide world of electronic music with a collection of Kirk Degiorgio’s personal favorites. Spanning everything from the sci-fi laboratories of the Radiophonic Workshop and Manhattan Research Inc, to oddball characters like Mort Garson, Sun Ra and Ralph Lundsten, Kirk explores the many maverick pioneers of synthesized tones. Whether selecting obscure library records like Frederick Charles Judd and Roberto Cacciapaglia or the experiments of some of the foundational cornerstones of popular music such as Funkadelic, Tonto’s Expanding Headband and Maurice White, it’s electronic music unlike you’ve heard before.
