Raymond Scott http://kmuw.org en Musical Space: Raymond Scott http://kmuw.org/post/musical-space-raymond-scott <p>American musician Raymond Scott was one of the most important composers of the Twentieth Century because had a knack for constant innovation and writing music for emerging media. I can’t think of any other composer who was so ahead of his time while also being so recognizable.</p><p>In the 1930s the Raymond Scott Quintette played original novelty pop tunes that combined experimental textures, frenetic tempos and appropriated jazz riffs. He played regularly on radio and film; selling a lot of records in the process.</p><p></p> Tue, 25 Dec 2012 12:50:01 +0000 Mark Foley 10377 at http://kmuw.org Musical Space: Raymond Scott
