The iconic singer-songwriter and poet Jim Morrison changed the face of the American music scene forever. As the frontman of The Doors, one of the most influential rock ‘n roll acts the world has ever seen, Morrison was a pioneer in obliterating the boundaries that attempted to define rock music. In an interview roughly 40 years old, Morrison hypothesized the future of music:

“…it might rely heavily on electronics, tapes. I can kind of envision one person with a lot of machines, tapes and electronics set up singing or speaking and using machines.”
