Pre-Electronic & Post-Electronic Music in Electronic Sound #68, and Prehistoric Microtonal Scales in The Silo

This month’s Electronic Sound magazine contains my feature titled ‘Parallel Worlds’ examining worlds beyond electronic sound, into pre-electronic and post-electronic music. It coincides with the release of the Oscillatorial Binnage album ‘Agitations: Post-Electronic Sounds‘ (Sub Rosa) where classical electronic sound techniques are explored acoustically.  A blogpost on the main Miraculous Agitations blog offers some additional perspectives, focussing on a Victorian proto-electronic toneshaping device called ‘Le Vibrateur‘, patented by the mysterious Eugene Ernest Bornand in 1879, and viewed here through the gauze of modern electronic soundmaking.

Also this month, one of my earlier blog posts about arbitrary microtonal scales from hollow rocks is republished by The Silo.
