10/7/18 Synth Country

“What is country music ?” Many will answer that it is music with “real instruments, not that electronic stuff.” Since the early days of electronic music, though, there have been various attempts to combine the technology with country music.

The Pandora article “The New Sounds of Country Music: Synth, Funk, and a Bit of Disco” details the history of the “synth” in country music from 1965-present : Pandora article

Here is Gil Trythall’s album, mentioned in the above article: Country Moog/Nashville Gold

Cattle Call is one my favorites from this album.

The old-time fiddle tune Chicken Reel was composed in 1910, but Jean-Jacques Perrey created an electronic derivative decades later called “Chicken on the Rocks,” which South Park featured on an episode.
