Daphne Oram was an electronic music pioneer – one of the first British composers to create electronic sound.
She co-founded the BBC Radiophonic Workshop based in Maida Vale creating the original theme tune to Dr Who.
Offered a place at the Royal College of Music which she turned down, to join the BBC as a studio engineer. She worked the analogue way by speeding up, slowing down & splicing tape for effects. Frustrated at the BBC’s lack of interest in pushing electronic music forward: she resigned to become self employed.
She contributed to several Bond films without credit. She developed Oramics: electronic sounds etched into film.
