Music Is My Field- Harald Bode: The Art of Engineering and Homestudio Music


Samstag um 23.05 , Saturday at 11:05pm German time

On 10/08/11 at 23.05 European time it´s finally Part two of the Harald Bode story:
Westdeutscher Rundfunk 3 Cologne will present “Music Is My Field- Harald Bode: The Art of Engineering and Homestudio Music”

It is about traces of his work in different musical styles from the thirties til the eighties,-
from “Melodium” melodies to “BarberPolePhaser” sound. And it´s about his own music.
If you go to

and click “stream”(rechts in der Mitte), you will find the right player for your OS
Or: Below stream you will find the “Radiorecorder”
(“Stream” and “Radiorecorder” are provided by WDR 3. Sorry I can´t give any support. I recommend “radiorecorder” though for better sound quality.)

Here the announcement by the editor WDR 3 Markus Heuger:
“The story of the inventor of many electronic instruments, one of which was the inspiration for the first Moog Modulars, is also the story of the myth around Electronic sound. In the beginning it was mostly seen as a technological gimmick or miracle, or as a danger for culture itself.

Electronic sound since has become an everyday´s part of our musical

life. Harald Bode was admidst this evolution.
He invented seventeen instruments between 1937 and 1984. You can hear them in academic music of the Fifties, as well as in Disco music of the 80ties. WDR 3 open: FreiRaum presents the witchkitchen of the inventor and “soundpractioner”, who lived until 1987. He called his own music “commercial “. His studio and instruments he called “only means “.
“What miraculous means!”

So far the announcement.
