nice. following through the Raymond Scott link to the side of that video brought me to a song from one of my favorite albums by him, Soothing Sounds for Baby. I think it's a three volume set, or at least I've only found three.

I have so much awe and respect for the people with the patience to work with tape loops. Here are a few more songs ahead of their time, though these are from the mid to late 60's:

Either Delia Derbyshire or Daphne Oram or both:
some experimental track

Delia Derbyshire:
Ziwzih Ziwzih OO-OO-OO

Bruce Haack:
School for Robots

Yes, I have a crush on Delia Derbyshire.

And the most obvious Derbyshire work, the Dr. Who Theme.
True pioneers.

Wild, I looked at the first link last, just as I was about to go and look for some Tom Disseveldt and Kid Baltan to add to the list.

I had that record (the very one in the video - the EP rather than Song of the Second Moon, which includes all those tracks under different names) when I was a kid and used to listen to it a lot.

And here they are!

Jesus, this sounds a lot like Herbie Hancock's Sextant. Pretty amazing.

It sounds to me like a lot of the sounds from Super Mario World (for SNES) came straight off of this record.
