26 “Part 1” from Silver Apples of the Moon (1967) by Morton Subotnik
The first electronic composition conceived and recorded specifically for release as a commercial recording. (Stockhausen to have edited the four parts of Hymnen the previous year so that they would fit on the four sides of two discs, but his work was conceived for live performance.) It uses the Buchla synthesizer and was the first widely recognized work by this important composer of electronic music.
