Description

Something radically new: an extraordinary rarity in musical culture. It was an instrument that used a genuinely new source of sound: electronics. How this came to be, how an engineering student at Cornell and an avant-garde musician working out of a storefront in California set this revolution in motion, is the story told for the first time in Analog Days, a book that explores the invention of the synthesizer and its impact on popular culture.
