Estos días ha aparecido por google video el documental del 2004, Bruce Haack: The king of techno, dirigido por Philip Anagnos. En él se presenta la vida de este poco conocido pionero de la música electrónica, de origen canadiense, desaparecido en 1988.
Bruce Haack, born on May 4, 1931, was one of the most musically and lyrically inventive children’s songwriters of the ’60s and ’70s. Despite — or perhaps because of — his intended audience, his music was unusually expressive, combining homemade analog synths; classical, country, pop, and rock elements; and surreal, idealistic lyrics. Haack’s innovations and desire to teach still sound fresh, making his music a favorite with fans of analog synths and esoteric recordings. Followers like Luke Vibert and Add N to X championed his unique musical vision, which embraced concepts like “powerlove” and turned household appliances into synthesizers and modulators.
