Jim Morrison, Prophet?
Alright... So, I'm not really too sure of the source of this video (spotted it over @ Summer Time in Hell). The video tag says it's from a 1970 interview. In it, Jim Morrison basically predicts the third wave of music; Relying on electronics and tapes, a singular, machine set-up type of thing... I take it as Hip-Hop (sampling) and/or "Electronic Music." However you interpret it, pretty cool nonetheless!
And an interesting new book - How to Wreck a Nice Beach ("How to Recognize Speech") by Dave Tompkins. The history of the Vocoder, documenting it's progression in Pop Music (Stones Throw/Stopsmiling books). From the US government to T-Wayne.
