Bandcamp pick of the week: Daphne Oram - Sound Houses

This is mandatory listening for anyone interested in the history and development of electronic music. 'Sound Houses' is an exploration of the sonic archive of the late Daphne Oram - composer, inventor and founder of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop.

"Oram's otherworldly sonic experiments with synthesis and music concrete primarily in the 1960s were decades ahead of their time, her musical legacy unjustly overlooked until recent years when the increasing fascination of modern culture with all things analogue has cemented her status internationally as a pioneer and key figure in the development of electronic music and the recording studio."
