Classic Album Sundays: A Clockwork Orange by Wendy Carlos

For a special edition of Clasic Album Sundays Colleen digs deep into Wendy Carlos's incredible score for Stanley Kubrick's 'A Clockwork Orange'. Colleen is joined by British DJ and journalist Greg Wilson as they talk through one of cinema's most unique scores.

Wendy Carlos is what you might call a true genius in the world of twentieth century music. She has always been ahead of her time…expanding boundaries and challenging listeners and herself. Her dramatic score for the legendary Clockwork Orange motion picture is an interesting collection of solid, dark, electronic proto-new age music.

Greg began DJing in 1975 and is regarded as one of the most important figures on the UK dance scene. He enjoyed hugely popular residencies in the early eighties at Wigan Pier and Manchester’s majorly influential Legend. Greg was a pioneer of mixing in the UK and in 1983 he became the first ‘dance music’specialist hired for a regular session at Manchester’s legendary Haçienda club.
