476 Tracks der elektroakustischen Jahre 1937-2001 für jedermann im Internet. Krasse Sammelarbeit.
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. Now, for the first time, 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.
