Charles Dodge holds a place as a pioneer in speech synthesis and his electronic music is always worth a listen. Also check out his work - if you can find it anymore - on the Nonesuch Explorer label, such as "Time's Encomium." Delicious stuff, frequently with a touch of humor.

Good luck with finding any of those, man... I'd like to hear any or all of them myself.

Apparently taken from the (still active) Closet of Curiosities Is it just lazieness that you don't give any credits for other bloggers' work or is it sheer presumptuousness? Franklin

Charles Dodge's work is not on vocoder but relatively earlier voice synthesis software. If we're going to get technical.

Correct. Dodge was a pioneer in the development of voice synthesis software.

Also getting picky: Time's Enconium was by Charles Wuorinen.

Beautiful!!! How did I miss this when it was first posted? Thanks to Pecks Spet Rips I've found it now.

This record was available from my local library when I was a kid and I kept it checked out nearly all the time.

Thanks for letting me hear it again!
