The Wire - Pt 6

All summer long we've been featuring the Peabody Award-winning series, The Wire: The Impact of Electricity on Music. Each episode looks at different ways electricity has changed the way we hear and make music. So far, we've heard about the impact of the microphone, multi-tracking, the electric guitar, synthesizers and background music. This week in Episode Six, we have a look at remixing, sequencing, and the drum machine.
