Raymond Scott tribute videos

A great way to enjoy some Raymond Scott: footage from the Raymond Scott Centennial Tribute Concert, March 12, 2008 at Concordia University in Montreal, Canada.

These are from the 2005adamo channel on YouTube, which is a fantastic collection of Raymond Scott-related videos. If you don't already own it, I highly recommend this CD of Raymond Scott's music: Reckless Nights & Turkish Twilights.

Here's a video playlist on YouTube for the whole concert:

Also, there's another video that is about Scott's "Fascinations Machines," a collection of electronic instruments he designed in the early 1960s:

Poking around the Tube a little, I also found this trailer for what could be an interesting documentary, Raymond Scott: On to Something.

OK, one more thing: Mark Mothersbaugh of Devo owns Raymond Scott's Electronium instrument:

I've heard that Mothersbaugh is committed to getting the Electronium working again someday, which would be awesome!


Oh, and there’s an official Raymond Scott website as well! It has pretty interesting FAQs, including one about Jim Henson that reminds me of something else I’ve been meaning to post . . .
