Oram, Daphne – “Oramics” – [Paradigm Discs]

Daphne Oram is the creator of Oramics, a drawn sound technique designed in 1957. The machine was further developed in 1962 after receiving a grant from the Gulbenkian Foundation. Daphne also co-founded the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, joining the BBC at 17 years of age back in 1942 (turning down a place at the Royal Academy of Music). She would camp out at the BBC studios for nights on end splicing tapes and working with various modified machines to create her abstract soundscapes. A true pioneer in electronic music, this release covers the whole range of Oram???s post BBC output. Field recordings, music concret, cat meows, noize, beautiful melodies, commercials, soundtracks, alien spaceships, its all here and its all amazing.
