i am split. on the one hand, the paper-bag rolls of
psychedelic patterns is quite impressive for the 50s. on the
other hand, trombone had glide first. there are probably
many even earlier instruments with that sort of quality.
it's mostly of note because it's closer to modern approaches
-- like, is the hurdy-gurdy the first violin VST? so i don't
see this as the invention of glide so much as a new stage of
thought with how to approach composition

and perhaps there are other musicians who had this first,
too. i really don't know much of this history

did he have this going before raymond scott? if he did,
well, we can stop there

Yeah I thought of Raymond Scott, and also Conlon Nancarrow,
and a bit of Harry Partch, maybe a smidgen of Daphne Oram.
But most of all this is like Dr. Seuss designed instruments
under the direction of Rube Goldberg.

I think a lot of people had freaky music ideas in the mid
20th century, that in hindsight appear convergent.

yeah I was thinking pitch glide is something that's been
around since probably the invention of music, you can do it
with your voice.

I just like the heath Robinson style nature of the machines
