Machine: An Electronically Preserved Dream by Trevor Wishart

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 64 min
Event Type: Music  

Originally broadcast in October of 1972 this recording represented the American premiere of an hour-long work by the British electro-acoustic composer, Trevor Wishart. The piece “Machine: An Electronically Preserved Dream,” was completed in 1971 and was the first major composition by Wishart. It was performed at the International Carnival of Electronic Sound series in London and was eventually released in 1973. Made without any traditional musical instruments, the work is a creative mixture of collected industrial and electronic sounds, spoken texts, and improvised choirs, all intricately edited into a single continuos soundscape. This work is both a philosophical investigation of industrialization and a simply great soundtrack for dishwashing, dreaming, driving, or best of all, whatever is on television right now!
