For assorted reasons I’ve been thinking of writing and illustrating a children’s book about electronic music. In particular, a book in German about German pioneers of electronic music. I’m not a native speaker of German so part of this is to help me learn the language. And have fun in so doing. I’m aware of Karlheinz Stockhausen. And Kraftwerk, of course. But less familiar with the pre-Kraftwerk people. Thanks!
Update: I’ve started tracking stuff in a spreadsheet:
13 May 2015: Added a few more entries. If you’ve not seen http://120years.net you own it to yourself to check it out. Great history of electronic instruments.
4 June 2015: I’m trying to limit this to people and places pre-Kraftwerk. I think from 1970 on there’s a a fair amount already known. Plus, after that, making electronic music was far less novel.
