History Of Electronic Music On A Theremin Schematic

Electric Love Blueprint from Dorothy

From Dorothy, a brief history of electronic music overlaid on a theremin schematic.  From the item's description:

Metallic silver screen print on 120gsm Keaykolour Royal Blue uncoated paper H60 x W80cm A history of electronic music mapped out to the circuit board of a theremin, which is widely regarded as one of the first electronic musical instruments.

Our Electric Love Blueprint celebrates over 200 inventors, innovators, artists, composers and musicians who (in our opinion) have been pivotal to the evolution of electronic music from the invention of the earliest known sound recording device in 1857 to the present day. Key pioneers featured include Léon Theremin, Bob Moog, Karlheinz Stockhausen, John Cage, Brian Eno, Kraftwerk and Aphex Twin.

The print loosely groups genres, from the obscure Musique Concrète (Pierre Schaeffer) to the better known Krautrock (Kraftwerk, Can, Tangerine Dream, Neu!, Faust, Cluster, Harmonia and Amon Düül II) Synthpop (Gary Numan, Human League, Depeche Mode, Yazoo and Pet Shop Boys) and Electronica (New Order, The Prodigy, Massive Attack, LCD Sound System and Daft Punk). There are also references to the experimental BBC Radiophonic Workshop and our favourite innovating record labels Mute and Warp. Screen printed metallic silver onto a blue uncoated stock.
