Post-industrial Music - Post-industrial Developments - Electronic Body Music

Electronic body music combines elements of industrial music and electronic dance music. It first came to prominence in Belgium. The name was coined by Ralf Hütter of Kraftwerk in 1978 to explain the more physical sound of their album The Man-Machine. The term was later used in its current sense by Belgian group Front 242 in 1984 to describe their EP No Comment, released in the same year. It denotes a certain type of danceable electronic music, a mixture of synthpunk and industrial music. Other artists include Armageddon Dildos, Die Krupps, à;GRUMH..., A Split-Second, And One, Bigod 20, The Neon Judgement, and Attrition.

Famous quotes containing the words music, electronic and/or body:

    Great music is that which penetrates the ear with facility and leaves the memory with difficulty. Magical music never leaves the memory.
    Thomas Beecham (1879–1961)

    Ideally, advertising aims at the goal of a programmed harmony among all human impulses and aspirations and endeavors. Using handicraft methods, it stretches out toward the ultimate electronic goal of a collective consciousness.
    Marshall McLuhan (1911–1980)

    And deep into her crystal body poured
    The hot and sorrowful sweetness of the dust:
    Whereof she wanders mad, being all unfit
    For mortal love, that might not die of it.
    Edna St. Vincent Millay (1892–1950)
