Tristram Cary
Guy Lochhead, 03/03/13
English composer known for his pioneering tape manipulation and electro-acoustic experiments. He is one of the many people credited as the “father of electronic music”. He built his own equipment in the ’50s in order to develop his experimental ideas. He designed the first electronic music studio at the Royal College of Music in 1967. He was a founder of Electronic Music Studios (London) in 1969, which produced the VCS 3 early synthesiser. He is perhaps most widely known for his incidental music in Doctor Who and The Ladykillers. Cary was a significant figure in the advent of modern electronic music, but I would probably sooner include a different pioneer or a collaborative effort.
