Chapter 118: I Am Sky

Electronic experiments & new age

By the 70s, electronic music was no longer just an academic curiosity - musicians were learning to tame synthesizers, and synth beats were appearing everywhere from German prog to Italian disco. But these tinkerers were still operating on the proverbial untapped well, with oceans of potential underneath their feet. Here are ten electronic expeditions down the well that will wrinkle your brain, fill your heart, and even cleanse your aura, in the case of New Age spiritual-but-not-religious meditations like “Morning Splendor.”
