Hello. I’ve made an 8tracks dedicated to some of the electronic music which has, over the years, given me the Poe-style tears, both directly and indirectly. We shall know it as TEC_TONICS, because it’s important to feel overwhelmed by beauty from time to time, I think.
Kubrick’s Space Odyssey is, of course, the imagery, partly because astronauts are probably the most iconic visual synonymous with the scientific endeavours and achievements of mankind, and partly because HAL broke my heart (“Daisy, Daisy…”) Also, I was lucky enough to see it at London’s Royal Festival Hall last year with live performances by the Philharmonia Orchestra and Philharmonia Voices, which only served to underscore what a flawless accomplishment it was. I cried my eyes out the second it started, and the fear of never experiencing anything close to it again has left me on a beauty-comedown ever since. Anyway, for your listening (dis)pleasure…

Carefully compiled by myself, ELECTR_ODE_ is my 9-track 8tracks which, as the title suggests, is an ode to electronic music, and you can listen to it here: http://8tracks.com/fiwilson/electr_ode_
Know, reader, that due to licensing balls the order will only be as intended once per person, after that it’ll be rendered unto the fate we know as randomised plays, though this will doubtless be an irritation to nobody but myself. Enjoy!
