Electronic dance music (EDM). The words that just roll of your tongue.
Here’s some little known facts about EDM:
– EDM was founded by Dutch composer Dirk Van Hooijdonk in his musical work “Muziek Voor Houtblazers en Percussie in Db-Major, Op. 23” in 1712. Of course this was before the electricity was invented so the music was originally called acoustic dance music (Akoestische Dansmuziek).
– In 1913, German physicist (and amateur cellist) Otto Munchhausen experimented with prototypes for very primitive motion sensor device. The called his invention “radaroscope”. The blueprint for the radaroscope was a few decades later used for the first commercial synthesizers.
– The first EDM single to sell gold in US was “Nachos” by Baba Johnson in 1968. The tune hit the charts again in 2003, when it was featured in blockbuster movie “The Year of the Dreamer”.
Ok, only one of those is actually true, the other “facts” I just made up.
Can you guess which one’s the real deal?
Oh yeah, and: LAZER POINTEE.
