Daphne Oram – Wikipedia

“Daphne Oram (31 December 1925 – 5 January 2003) was a British composer and electronic musician. She was one of the first British composers to produce electronic sound, and was a pioneer of musique concrète in the UK.[1] As a co-founder of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, she became a central figure in the evolution of electronic music.[2] She was the creator of the Oramics technique for creating electronic sounds using drawn sound. Besides being a musical innovator, she was the first woman to independently direct and set up a personal electronic music studio, and the first woman to design and construct an electronic musical instrument.[1]”
