Wendy Carlos: Tron


Wendy Carlos: Tron Original Soundtrack
Released: 1982 (CBS Records)

Wendy Carlos is a notorious name in the world of Moog synthesizers. Her first record, Switched on Bach, released in 1968, demonstrates the possibilities of the new musical technology, questioning the criticisms by musical purists. Decades later the Moog is still a revered instrument and Carlos’ compositions and renditions of classical favorites (such as the 1972 soundtrack for A Clockwork Orange) are still viable today. The Tron soundtrack, featuring Carlos’ original score and a track by arena rockers Journey, is a great piece of analog synthesizer music. This version is from the original 1982 LP.
