A six-part series in which James Gardner traces a personal path through the evolving world of electronic music - and meets some of the people who made it happen.

2) "Raindrops In The Sun"
New musics rise from the secret projects and surplus junk of World War Two. In Hollywood, hi-fi sci-fi sounds hit the screen. We hear Pierre Boulez and Karlheinz Stockhausen in discussion at Darmstadt (world exclusive audio) and interviews with Tristram Cary, Peter Zinovieff, David Cockerell and Brian Hodgson (RNZ)

Our very grateful thanks in the production of this programme go to:

Mark Ayres; Mark Brend; Christopher Fox; Ian Helliwell; Adrian Hollay, for being Karlheinz Stockhausen; Martin Iddon; Penny Lomax of the ABC’s The Music Show, for Tristram Cary interview material; Fiona McAlpine; Claudia Meyer-Hesse of the International Music Institute Darmstadt, for the 1956 archival recordings of Stockhausen and Alois Hába; National Public Radio (USA), for the interviews with Bebe Barron and Bob Moog; Ian Pace; Rula Schaad; Jeff Stadelman; And Dave Tompkins, for the Bell Labs vocoder demonstrations.
