Morton Subotnick - Silver Apples Of The Moon, The Wild Bull (1867, 1968)




Silver Apples of the Moon was Morton Subotnick's first full-length LP, the first piece of classical music commissioned by a record company, which was composed in 1967 specifically for release on Nonesuch/Elektra. Subotnick took the name from Yeats's poem The Song of Wandering Aengus."The silver apples of the moon, the golden apples of the sun." As Subotnick says, "It doesn't really mean anything. I just liked the sound of it."Morton Subotnick's Silver Apples of the Moon, was the first album of all-electronic music. Released in 1967, it found favor with electronics geeks, as well as legions of stoners who soaked in its mind-blowing sounds. It was made with a "Buchla" analogue synthesizer , made by Don Buchla. It remains untill today, one of the most influencial albums of electronic music.
Based on an ancient Sumerian poem, Morton Subotnick's "The Wild Bull" , is no less an adventurous sonic trip on the Buchla synthesizer.
