About Mort Garson

A pop hitmaker, a masterful arranger, and an electronic music pioneer, Mort Garson influenced a remarkably wide swath of pop culture during the 1960s and '70s. Not only did he write Ruby & the Romantics' chart-topping 1963 single "Our Day Will Come" and provide the luxe string arrangement for Glen Campbell's 1968 smash "By the Time I Get to Phoenix," he helped introduce the world to the sounds of the Moog synthesizer through his music for commercials and his soundtrack for CBS' broadcast of the moon landing in 1969. Decades later, however, the transporting moods of Garson's albums -- which included 1971's Black Mass/Lucifer, 1975's Ataraxia - The Unexplained, and 1976's plant-inspired Mother Earth's Plantasia informed generations of ambient, film, and new age composers. In the late 2010s and 2020s, archival releases began to give Garson the credit he deserved for shaping the sound of electronic music.
