The History of Electronic Music In 476 Tracks

Caio Barros was an undergrad studying composition when he began digitizing his professor’s sizable collection of electronic music CDs in 2009. To increase its chances of mass distribution, he converted the collection into a torrent file. But somehow, that torrent disappeared from cyberspace—but ubuweb is hosting this massive collection of early electronic works in its entirety.

We would like to point out, however, that not many female composers are represented in these 476 tracks. The selection also excludes pretty much anything that happened outside the Western world. Check it out here, and then go check out a mix featuring 35 female electronic music innovators here.
