Morton S. "Mort" Garson was a Canadian-born composer, arranger, songwriter, and pioneer of electronic music. He is best known for his albums in the 1960s and 1970s that were among the first to feature Moog synthesizers.
Mort Garson's road to cool cultural caché and the sublimity of "Plantasia" meant a decades' long journey through an underworld of sophisticated, international, string-laced dreck (i.e., your great-grandparents’ record collection) to arrive at "Music From Patch Cord Productions", this set of queasy-listening.
"Music From Patch Cord Productions" shows that Garson's knack was to exist in both worlds, super-commercial and waaay out. Via Garson,s wizardry, the synthesizer transcended novelty to ubiquity and dominance.
