Further Listening

Want to listen to more? Here are some suggestions...
There’s a lot more to listen to in terms of historical electronic music.

The Sub Rosa label released multiple volumes of compilation records entitled An Anthology of Noise & Electronic Music which provide a really interesting overview of electronic music across the 20th century. Each release is curated and pulls together a wide range of different pieces, from historical works by Luigi Russolo and John Cage, to pieces by more modern artists who acknowledge a direct influence from these early pioneers, such as DJ Spooky and Sonic Youth. Definitely worth checking out any of these releases – most are on Spotify or other streaming services, and so are pretty easy to find.

Otherwise, here are a few different works that I’d recommend checking out. Many of these aren’t as hard-line or foundational to the experience of electronic music as those we’ve used for the listening this week, but they’re all genuinely interesting pieces to listen to.
