9/12/2013 ‘Shox!’ tracklist

The focus of what, due to gremlins in the studio works, has turned out to have been the last live broadcast of 2013 was the work of some pioneers of electronic sound. Of course, given time constraints, many a deserving soul found their sounds conspicuously absent – no StockhausenVarese, and Schaeffer for example, but hopefully the following served as a reasonable introduction to brave new waves from the 50’s to the early 80’s.
