Surprise! Despite it`s sometimes quite technical aspects, difficult to appreciate for the neophyte in this area, What the Future Sounded Like turned out to be a fascinating and even entertaining and funny portrait of one of the most exciting periods in post-war British music, and the people behind one of the world’s most advanced computer music facilities at that time. This radical group of avant-garde electronic musicians, who played a key role in the cultural revolution of the ’60s, used new technologies and experimentation to compose a futuristic electronic soundscape for the New Britain, changing the sound of some of the most popular artists of this period, including Brian Eno, Pink Floyd, Hawkwind, Gong, and the German group Kraftwerk-names that immediately brought back a whole epoch to me.
