Fabricio Carvalho has created quite a few podcasts honoring old electronic music pioneers.

I like this a lot. Quirky, oddball and catchy. I’m diggin’ the little random filtery sounds.
This is a Future Retro Zillion algorithmic sequencer. A few settings cause the Zillion to generate sequences of notes via Midi.
It’s based on the Triadex Muse, a musical toy from the 1970’s.
Here’s a Zillion with a bunch of other Eurorack stuff.
The Muse was designed by Marvin Minsky and Edward Fredkin, both MIT professors with an interest in artificial intelligence, Intended as a compositional aid.
Here’s a vid with the Triadex Muse, Amplifier and LIght Show.
An algorithmic music generator, the Muse uses digital logic circuits to produce a sequence of notes based on the settings of various parameters. It has four small sliders that control Volume, Tempo, Pitch, and Fine Pitch.
Extremely rare. I wish I woulda gotten one back in 1972.
This live electronic performance by Oneohtrix Point Never is worth settling down and listening to.http://boilerroom.tv/recording/oneohtrix-point-never/
One of my favorite classical pieces. This is straight into the computer, so no post. I’ll get to redoing it properly, but for now it’s just kind of a test to get two simultaneous voices out of the boxes.
