Synth Innovator Daphne Oram Remembered with New Release
Published Nov 29, 2011Best known for inventing the "Oramics" technique, electronic composer Daphne Oram left a major mark on the music world before passing away at 77 in 2003. Next year, her legacy will be celebrated with the release of a new compilation.
The collection will house 46 tracks spread across four LPs and two CDs. Along with voice and sound experiments, field recordings and commercial work, the comp will include sound effects and atmospheric pieces that were used in 2001: A Space Odyssey and The Innocents.
