Discovering Electronic Music

Good radio documentary on electronic music by the BBC here.. (part of their excellent Discovering Music archive)

Alwynne Pritchard takes us on a journey through the rich and colourful landscape of electronic music with composer Jonathan Harvey discussing his Mortuos Plango, Vivos Voco and pioneering works by Varese and Stockhausen.

The BBC is grateful to Professor Michael Clarke Director of the Electroacoustic Music Studio at the University of Huddersfield for his assistance in making this programme, and in particular for his permission to use his innovative software analysis of Jonathan Harvey's piece which features in chapter 6 of the book Analytical Methods of Electroacoustic Music, edited by Mary Simoni.
