"Perfect Day" was originally inspired by a ham sandwich I had eaten. It was so amazing that it had turned my day into a perfect day. It was delicious, so delicious that I decided to dedicate a song to it. I really liked where I was going with the song so I changed some of the lyrics around and now it just sounds like any ordinary song. Most people wouldn’t have guessed that it was about a ham sandwich.
TODAY IN TRANS ARTISTS:
Wendy Carlos born November 14, 1939
AKA the mother of modern electronic music
This amazing woman composed and recorded the entire Clockwork Orange soundtrack, yeah, that shit, that amazing stuff, this gal, right here. Also, The Shining, yep. That scary masterpiece, this gal made the music that made you piss.
Her biggest break through album was Switched On Bach(1968) which, yes, is amazing synth-y classical jams.
She began transitioning with the use of hormones in 1968 and has also won like 4 friggin’ awards for being awesome!(actually, mostly for having amazing music which directly equals being friggin’ awesome)
So, if anyone asks you who the biggest bad ass in electronic-acoustic, or just electronic music in general, you tell them Wendy-God-Damn-Carlos
I love the A Clockwork Orange soundtrack to death.
