Daphne Oram - Oramics

She was one of the founding members of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop in
1957, and a true pioneer in electronic music. This amazing double disc
charts her post-BBC work in her own studio in Kent. Her Oramics
invention consisted of drawing onto a set of ten sprocketed
synchronised strips of 35mm film which covered a series of
photo-electric cells that in turn generated an electrical charge to
control the sound fequency, timbre, amplitude and duration. The
attraction of this technique was a direct relation of a graphic image
to the audio signal and even though the system was monophonic the
control over the nuances of sound production was very flexible. Daphne
Oram continued to use the process throughout the sixties producing work
for film and theatre including; ‘Rockets in Ursa Major’ (1962),
‘Hamlet’ (1963) and ‘Purple Dust’ (1964).
