This excellent mini-doc covers the origins and life of Electronic Music Studios – a company formed by avant-garde musicians & engineers who all shared a passion for electronic sound – which at that time, was widely seen as a lot of kooky, artsy-fartsy noodling. Their collaborative efforts brought about the first electronic music sequencer, utilizing a relatively massive amount of computing power for the 1950s. Awesomely good stuff.
