Bleep : A Guide To Electronic Music
–Posted by Calum Sager on 28 June 2012
The Warp founded online music store Bleep.com have compiled a collection of 55 landmark electronic tracks from the 1930s up to present day. The selection weaves between the likes of Olivier Messiaen, John Cage, up to Burial, J Dilla and James Blake. The compilation was developed out of a project to create a Facebook timeline charting the development of electronic music from the late 19th Century until now. Here are a few words the people over at Bleep had to say about the collection :
"Our aim with this selection of music is to show the length and breadth of the medium, providing a snapshot of the genres forms and styles, and the development of the artform. Whilst there are omissions and compromises that we have had to make, we hope that we achieve our aims and we do some justice to the variety of music that we love. "
