Google call it “A brief history of electronic music” and it is packed with music, technology, history with a massively diverse and international approach. Nothing brief about it!

Music, Makers & Machines

It’s a huge project about the history of electronic music featuring over 200 online articles and exhibitions by over 50 institutions from 15 countries. The AR Synth from the Swiss Museum of Electronic Music Instruments (SMEM) that we raved about yesterday is only a taste of what’s on offer.

The website invites you to explore the exhibitions from the point of view of a “Tech Nerd”, music lover, clubber or as a total novice and then curates you through videos, ideas, concepts and science. You can start with The Human League, move through to Berlin’s night clubs, learn about the Theremin, discover the investors like Raymond Scott and Alan R. Pearlman and sink into the work of Pierre Schaeffer and Daphne Oram.

There are 3D models of famous synths and drum machines to check out, flyers from events and concerts to browse, studios to visit and artists to meet. Sounds are explained, synthesis is delved into and electronics laid bare. You can journey through the electronic music of Indonesia, France, Japan and discover record labels and dance venues before moving on to collaborations and visualisations that shape both the music and the culture.
