Bruce Haack

Bruce Haack (1931-1988) was a musician and composer, and a pioneer of electronic music. Stones Throw's collection, Fadad: The Electric Voice focuses on tracks Bruce Haack recorded from 1970-83 using his self-made vocoder, which he named "Farad." This was the one of the first truly musical vocoders, and first to be used on a pop album, pre-dating Kraftwerk’s Autobahn by several years.
