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.
I just thought that all of this was interesting.
fun fact edm faggots the synthesizer was invented in 1900 and electronic music is even older than rock music
here is a noise song from the 1920's also
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.
