My pictures are about a search for a moment—a perfect
moment. To me the most powerful moment in the whole
process is when everything comes together and there is
that perfect, beautiful, still moment. And for that instant,
my life makes sense.”

ACMV started tripping through electronically enhanced psychedelic pop music last week with very early electronic music by Tom Dissevelt & Kid Baltan, Raymond Scott and Joe Meek’s Tornados. We continue with music from the beginning of the psychedelic era from 1966 and 1967. I decided to include obvious representatives like the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and Pink Floyd because their influences were just too big to be ignored even though it might be boring for connoisseurs. There were still not so many people in 1966 and 67 who actually could afford the to that time very expensive electronic equipment, but starting 1969/70 the scene had become more diverse.
Incredible rough “Beat” track from 1966 by “The Sorrows”. Is it me or does this track remind you of Joy Division too?
