2007-06-22 Zero Time / Tonto's Expanding Head Band
of course everyone knows this success electric music album by Robert Margouleff and Malcom Cecil!! Malcom Cecil made the world premier polyphonic synthesizer T.O.N.T.O. (The Original New Timbral Orchestra), they formed Tonto's Expanding Head Band featuring T.O.N.T.O.!! Stevie Wonder discovered and loved this record, so he asked to work together... probably everyone knows these famous story... i love many electronics music, even like moog synthesizer meets Bach... such stupid early synthesizer records! but this record is really great, not too much experimemtal, but not like so-called synthesizer mood music! when i knew Stevie Wonder and Tonto's Expanding Head Band's story, i was so surprised that Stevie Wonder loved this music!!! because i believed he was not interested in any experimental music... (i like early Stevie Wonder's music! my first record what i bought by my money was Stevie Wonder's "Talking Book"!! i was 11 or 12 years old... hahaha...) although usually i'm not interested in any "new music", i can guess it was real revolutional future music in that moment... by the way it was in 1978 when i got a synthesizer Roland System 100 (model 101 and 102) that was my first instrument in my musical activity... you know i played and recorded just cosmic electronics sounds by it... hummm...
