In this video, Live Prog’s Marcel Haster offers his perspective on ‘a progger’s journey into EM’.
This isn’t intended to be a comprehensive look at electronic music, but primarily synth music/space music that shares some elements with prog.
Musicians presented in this special:
- Erik Norlander
- Picture Palace Music
- Ron Boots
- Can Atilla
- Jeffrey Haster, aka Synthex
For many years I have been active in progressive rock. But in the background I have always been fond of synthesizer music. Lately I found I was getting more interested in this genre, so I figured it was a good moment to add some EM to Live prog, to offer more diversity in music.
This special is my introduction to EM as experienced by a prog rock fan. It includes some short reviews of a few of my favourite EM albums, a lot of music and a nice video clip.
It’s a bit of a long special, but I do hope you like it.
