Mort Garson

Mort Garson was a Canadian composer, bandleader, and songwriter. He was a classically trained musician and electronic researcher who started his career in the 1960s. Garson was among the first to experiment with the big Moog synthesizer and became known for his original sci-fi space age soundscapes.

His debut album, released in 1967, featured sonic analog-based compositions. In 1969, he released another album that showcased supernatural electronic moods, pulsating hypnotic effects, and moving synthesized textures. Garson's musical universe can be compared to kitsch moog pop soundscapes but with more mystical-cerebral-adventurous proportions.

In 1971, he released his most progressive album yet: lysergic electronic modulations met dark epic timbres. Mort Garson is considered one of the most notorious Canadian space electronic artists alongside other notable figures such as [Collaborated Artist] and [Collaborated Artist].
