WHAT'LL YA HAVE, dear spacefan? Acoustic or electronic? Wait, you don't have to choose — today there's a whole genre that brings us the best of both, and that's where we're going on this edition of Hearts of Space.
Acoustic instruments have been evolving for centuries, becoming ever more refined and expressive. But they couldn't change the laws of physics, until electronics opened up new worlds of sound and new frontiers of music. Once the novelty of electronic sound settled in a bit, musicians set to work integrating the best of the old and the new.
On this transmission of Hearts of Space, acoustic instruments and electronics play well together, on a program called ELECTRO-ACOUSTIC. Music is by NEURONIUM, MICHAEL STRIBLING, BOB HOLROYD, KATHRYN KAYE, TIM STORY & HANS JOACHIM ROEDELIUS, CHRIS HAUGEN, and DARSHAN AMBIENT.
