Composer of the A Clockwork Orange soundtrack
Brilliant work that inspired so many digital artists.
The master tapes for her TRON score were damaged in a fire and were digitally resurrected a few years ago.
Followed by a great double blue vinyl release!
When I was a kid, one of the first records I bought was "Switched on Bach" by Walter Carlos. I probably still have it somewhere. Later, when CDs came out, I bought "Switched on Bach" on CD. Same album cover, except it’s by Wendy Carlos. That was how I learned Walter was now Wendy.
They had color photography when I was a kid (I’m not that old!) so I’m surprised to see such an old picture of Wendy. I thought the change took place much later.
I grew up with Switched on Bach on a reel-to-reel player.
Now would be a good time to mention "lords of synth" if you enjoy synthesizer satire.
