Silver Apples Made EDM in the 1960s
Electronic music pioneer Simeon Coxe of Silver Apples talks about using found junk to make their music, his famed oscillations, and the group’s legendary first show ever in Central Park.
Featured Music: Silver Apples – “Misty Mountain,” “Oscillations,” and “I Have Known Love.”
“I think the future is really ahead of us,” notes Coxe, “You’re going to see huge leaps in terms of what we accept as music.” Along with drummer Danny Taylor, Coxe created a new type of music, using found junk to create sounds that their audiences had never heard. Though Taylor died in 2005, Silver Apples lives on. Thump caught up with Coxe at the 2013 Mountain Oasis festival.
