Adrian Younge calls The Electronique Void an academic album, by which he means it is both
instructional and informational. The science of love, its formulas and if-then constraints,
causal relationships and observable properties, is best taught experientially, but learning it
hurts so, so bad. Music, especially electronic music, reliant as it is on abstraction and
unrepentant as it is about hijacking your physiological responses to tempo and rhythm and
dynamics, is a way to get there without going through it. Electronic music as practiced and
developed by pioneers like Dick Hyman and Raymond Scott and Wendy Carlos is precise and
intentional. In making his first electronic album, Younge took his cues from them, reminding
a contemporary audience what a synthesizer, deep in its heart, really could be.
This study of how music crafted with synthesizers can tap into raw human emotion is sure to
excite long-time fans of Younge as well as devotees of electronic music.
Adrian Younge now presents what is sure to be one of his most sought after instrumental
