Echoes Podcast: Wendy Carlos Switched-On Bach at 50

Wendy Carlos' Switched-On Bach Turns 50 in Echoes Podcast

Wendy Carlos-Moog SynthesizerIt was 1968 when Wendy Carlos took her Moog synthesizer and applied it to the contrapuntal music of Johann Sebastian Bach.  The album was called Switched-On Bach and it changed the shape of modern music forever.  It took synthesizers out of the world of sound effects and the avant-garde and into the mass market. Switched-On Bach was the herald of the future and made Robert Moog’s invention synonymous with synthesizer. We celebrate the  album’s 50th Anniversary with Wendy Carlos in the Echoes Podcast
