Discovering Electronic Music :: A Documentary (1983)

"We live in an age of technology in which machines touch every part of our lives. It is not surprising that music has also been influenced by technology." Bernard Wilets - Pasadena, CA, 1983

I'm presently working on a supervision project that takes place in 1983, and have been mining the depths of pop (and other) output between roughly 1978-84. Enter filmmaker Bernard Wilets 1983 documentary Discovering Electronic Music - a concise 22 minute overview of nascent analog synthesizer technology and digital sampling techniques, featuring music by F.R. Moore, Jean-Claude Risset, Rory Kaplan, Douglas Leedy and Stephan Soomil.

Visually/tonally it reminds me of watching The Electric Company in the early 80s: see Scanimate. Enjoy.
