Echoes Podcast Celebrates 50th Anniversary of Wendy Carlos' Switched-On Bach


"It was 1968 when Wendy Carlos took her Moog synthesizer and applied it to the contrapuntal music of Johann Sebastian Bach. The album was called Switched-On Bach and it changed the shape of modern music forever. It took synthesizers out of the world of sound effects and the avant-garde and into the mass market. Switched-On Bach was the herald of the future and made Robert Moog’s invention synonymous with synthesizer. We celebrate the album’s 50th Anniversary with Wendy Carlos in the Echoes Podcast" Click through to listen.
