Pioneers of Sound Episode, with Guest DJ, Elska


Listen to the modern “Pioneers of Sound!” with Elska as she takes us on a sonic journey into the world of early electronic music, synthesizers, micro-beats, bells and more.  Broadcasting from her Arctic island home, Elska teaches us about the origins of the most innovative sounds in pop music, how they were made, and then she plays us fascinating examples from pop music, art music, classical and some music that defies classification all together.  Get ready for a true sonic journey with “Pioneers of Sound!” − www.islandofelska.com

Featured Video: “We learn a lot about our surroundings thanks to sound. But… what is it exactly? Sound, that is. What is sound? And how does it travel? And what is this Doppler Effect that we’ve heard so much about? In this episode of Crash Course Physics, Shini goes over some of the basics (and some of the not so basics) of the Physics of Sound.”
