mp3@256 | 1967 | Early Electronica | 63.5 MB

Early Dutch Electronic Music from Philips Research Laboratories 1956-1963. Kid Baltan and Tom Dissevelt really were electronic pioneers, they did everything with tone generators and tapes, no keyboards were used. Although the single 'Song of the Second Moon' is from 1957 (!) this LP was released in 1967 in Europe.

Dick Raaijmakers [aka Kid Baltan], is one of, if not, THE most important composers of electronic music in the world. He's now in his late seventies, and composed the very first electronic pop tune in 1957 called: "Song Of The Second Moon". It delt with spacetravel, a theme that was popular due to the first man in space Yuri Gagarin. Back then he was asked by a Director who worked at Philips in Eindhoven to compose "popular electronic music" and "Song Of The Second Moon" was the first tune.

"Song Of The Second Moon" actually was created by oscillators, tone-generators, several Studer A-810 Tape Recorders and a scissor! It was an ingenious piece of effects and melodies with dozens of "frames" that had to be edited by hand and scissor, the old fashion "cut and paste".

Dick Raaijmakers was part of a team that consisted of 3 other members †Tom Dissevelt [a Jazz composer], †Henk Badings and †Roelof Vermeulen who all took part in inventing normal things like: Chorus, Delay, Echo, Reverb, Surround, Ambiophony, Dolby, and they were the first people who invented the "sample", before the word "sample" was in the dictionary…! With these experiments at Philips NATLAB [Natuurkundig Laboratorium] in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, Philips had a huge technological advantage over others like RCA and †Dr.Robert Moog.
