I have to post this, you should see it

Video description:

“This week’s Archivist Presents slot features a genius of electronic music, Daphne Oram.

This converted oast-house in Kent is really a kind of studio where Miss Daphne Oram is engaged in scientific research into electronic music. Thanks to a Gulbenkian Foundation grant, she’s surrounded by very expensive equipment. With it, she can compose the sound and music of the future.”

I have to post these, I’m a big Oram fan and was actually a little sad when the exhibit at the Science Museum went. It’s nice to see a little more of what she did though.

If you’re interested there is an iOS version of her Oramics machine. Not sure that this app has been updated in a long time though. So be warned.
