Bruce Haack

Bruce Haack's career has produced a variety of musical styles, particularly electronica and children's music. His most famous effort is perhaps his influential 1970 release, Electric Lucifer. An album that incorporated an innovative orchestration of psychedelic electronic music. He's often balanced out his two primary artistic focuses.

Bruce Haack's career has produced a variety of musical styles, particularly electronica and children's music. His most famous effort is perhaps his influential 1970 release, Electric Lucifer. An album that incorporated an innovative orchestration of psychedelic electronic music. He's often balanced out his two primary artistic focuses. Releasing a number of Children's storytelling and activity albums, while also continuing to expand on his electronic projects, like 1971's Together, an electronic pop album. His darkest album to date, Haackula strikes into playful territory. Haackula seems to have inspired Haack's final landmark work, 1981's Bite. The albums share several song titles and a dark lyrical tone different from Haack's usually idealistic style. Though Bite is harsher than his other works, it features his innovative, educational touch: a thorough primer on electronics and synthesizers makes up a large portion of the liner notes, and Haack adds a new collaborator for this album, 13-year-old vocalist Ed Harvey. In 1982, Haack recorded a proto-hip hop collaboration with Def Jam's Russell Simmons, entitled "Party Machine", one of the final projects in his life. Bruce Haack died in 1988 from heart failure. « hide
