In this vintage radio show, originally broadcast on CBC AM in Nov. 1968, the brilliant Glenn Gould offers his take on the Moog synthesizer and Switched On Bach.
Gould raves about the album, which was released a month earlier in Oct. 1968, calling it ‘the record of the decade’ and ‘one of the great feats in keyboard performance’.
Gould interweaves interviews with synthesist and composer Wendy Carlos and others, discussing the album, the synthesizer and its implications for music.
