CAN – Mushroom


This reminds me of another favorite song: Mushroom

I notice that members of the group had studied electronic music together, along with Jon Hassell, under Karlheinz Stockhausen circa 1966. Some of the more radical compositional techniques involved tape manipulation similar to composers such as Pierre Schaeffer and Iannis Xenakis (i promise to post in the future something about them, because they are in the top of my list). Good to know that Can exerted a huge influence on subsequent rock and electronic music.
