Any experimental music from the 50's that's worth mentioning? Anything pretty ahead of its time from that period? Never really hear of music from the 50's besides the huge stars.

Raymond Scott was a composer who, from what I understand was one of the first electronic musicians. He often made these electronic tracks for commercials as jingles, but it's still work checking out, just because of how innovative it is.

Also, J Dilla sampled this on Donuts.

>>61792500
yea op most of this video can be summed up by the good ones: raymond scott, joe meek, schaeffer & henry, bruce haack and the bbc radiophonic workshop (who did the old dr who stuff). but thanks for the buzzfeed list.

also the wozard of iz is right at the end of that video & it's one of the best albums to come out in the 60s

The fifties were the time in which jazz started branching out from a mainstream dance music style to become the highly diverse and musically complex genre we know today. Hardbop, Avantgarde jazz, Fusion, all of those genres were pioneered in the fifties.

don't you mean the highly diverse and musically complex genre we don't know today.

>>61792146
I remember someone posting some 1950s snyth stuff that sounding like proto afx. Can't find it tho

The silver apples are pretty great
>>
>>61793439
They're late 60's.

Title is ridiculous, but this is certainly interesting:

>>61793978
so are most of the subgenres mentioned here >>61793359
>>
>>61794058
But they were first explored in the late 50's. Silver Apples didn't record a note until '68 or something.
>>
>>61794105
(i wasn't disagreeing about silver apples). jazz fusion definitely wasnt around in the 50s
>>
>>61794515
Fair, but hard bop most certainly was and there's some 50's stuff that could be seen as avant-garde.
>>
>>61794596
very late 50s but w/e.
