Softcore Express – Electronic Bach: Switched-on Versions
Eternal Sunday presents another landmark album by Softcore Express: Electronic Bach Switched-on Versions, an album that features 12 tracks composed by the immortal Johan Sebastian Bach produced with analog synthesizers. Of course, the album is an homage to the first ever synthesized classical music album, done by Wendy Carlos in 1968 (back when he was Walter Carlos). That album produced dozens of clones, creating a new musical genre: classical music made with synthesizers. Now Softcore Express pays homage to that late 60s/ early 70s craze with this lovely album. The cover features a picture taken on the Recoleta Cemetery, Buenos Aires.
