#nowspinning | Stanley Kubrick’s Clockwork Orange – Music From The Soundtrack

This is a fantastic score, featuring classics by Elgar, Beethoven and Rossini. It’s most significant though for it’s use of synthesisers to recreate versions of classical music, including use of a vocoder. Wendy Carlos (then Walter), was previously famous for her Switched on Bach albums, which featured more classical music performed on Moog modular synthesisers. We can thank Wendy for helping bring both synthesisers and classical music into contemporary popular culture.
