What would you do if someone gave you a magical electronic instrument, one that could create any sound you could imagine? You might play it like a conventional acoustic instrument with a distinctive tone; or you might invent entirely new kinds of music, free from the physical limitations of breath, bow, vibrating strings, resonant tubes, stretched skins and skilled fingers...that defined traditional music for centuries.
Something like this actually happened to musicians beginning early in the 20th century. Along with recording technology, electronic music started a revolution we still haven't heard the end of a century later — a world of hundreds of new electronic genres, from so called IDM or Intelligent Dance Music, to an almost endless array of contemplative electronic sounds for solitary experience and "deep listening."
On this transmission of Hearts of Space, we focus on electronic music for virtual travel, on a program called ELECTRON TRAVELER 3.
