Mort Garson contained multitudes. Over the course of his prolific lifespan, the electronic composer blurred the line between commercial commissions and a vast array of experimental projects. While his synth peer Suzanne Ciani created sound effects for Coca-Cola commercials, Garson’s albums were given away with Sealy mattresses. Before Brian Eno recorded the soundtrack for a 1983 NASA documentary, Garson’s music was heard on TV transmissions of the Apollo 11 moon landing by Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin in 1969.
