Daphne Oram: an unlikely techno pioneer | Life and style | The Guardian

Daphne Oram en la BBC de Londres creando sonidos

Next to a pile of transistors and exposed metal, a woman with a pinroll hairdo tilts her head to one side and offers the camera a tight, prim smile. This is Daphne Oram, who, according to Science Museum curator Tim Boon, looked “like Margaret Thatcher . . . with a cut-glass accent”, but helped lay the foundation for techno music.

Oram seems an unlikely candidate for a techno pioneer, but as a new exhibition at the Science Museum shows, her life’s work was astonishing.
