Roger Detmer and Virgil Thomson discuss the influence of technology onto music

BROADCAST: 1965 | DURATION: 00:50:34


While their works and forte is classical music, Roger Detmer and Virgil Thomson talk about tape and electronic music. Detmer points out that in some eastern European countries, tape is considered pasee, and yet it's used often to recreate a sound to be used with their orchestras. Both men talk about electronic music and how it's sometimes used to make hand-made music sound artificial.
