Wendy Carlos's Switched-On Bach
Author
Roshanak Kheshti
ISBN
9781501320286
So much, popular and scholarly, has been written about the synthesizer, Bob Moog and his brand-name instrument, and even Wendy Carlos, the musician who made this instrument famous. No one, however, has examined the importance of spy technology, the Cold War and Carlos's gender to this critically important innovation. Through a postcolonial lens of feminist science and technology studies, Roshanak Kheshti engages in a reading of Carlos's music within this gendered context. By focusing on Switched-On Bach (the highest selling classical music recording of all time), this book explores the significance of gender to the album's--and, as a result, the Moog synthesizer's--phenomenal success.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Roshanak KheshtiPublisher: Bloomsbury AcademicPublished: 10/31/2019ISBN: 9781501320286Pages: 118Weight: 0.20lbsSize: 6.50h x 4.90w x 0.30d
