The Tone Generation

The Tone Generation radio documentaries.
Ian Helliwell has created 17 amazing radio documentaries on early electronic music.
The first 10 episodes cover individual countries, or close to it, then there is an hour long episode on the RCA computer and so on..
You will hear music by all the well known pioneers of electronic music, Xenakis, Cage, Henry, Nono etc as well as many you may have never heard of i.e Douglas Lilburn.(Do check out his triple CD!)

All of the incidental sounds are by Ian.

Really worth listening to. 10/10
