Editorial illustration for the back cover of EL SALTO. Layla Martínez writes this time about Daphne Oram, pioneer electronic composer, inventor of the Oramics Machine, and co-founder of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop.
“Oram 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.”
