Wie ist der Klang? [How is the sound?] AN HISTORICAL OVERVIEW OF HARALD BODE’S INSTRUMENTS

Posted on: February 28, 2013

This is a great overview of Harold Bode’s electronic musical instruments from: the Canadian Electroacoustic Community (CEC)

In one of his notebooks ca. 1937, Harald Bode wrote, “Wie ist der Klang?” The following article gives an overview on his instruments from 1937 until 1981. “How is the sound?” is an expanded version of a text the author prepared for the Harald Bode exhibition “A Lifetime for Sound” at the Estey Museum (Brattleboro VT) in 2010.
