"One early frontrunner, Daphne Oram, was a contemporary and colleague of Delia Derbyshire. Oram, writes Allan, “noodled with modular machines at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop in its early days, before the studio created the seminal Doctor Who theme” (largely Derbyshire’s doing). That description doesn’t do her justice. Oram was in fact a co-founder of the hugely influential Radiophonic Workshop, and her work deserves, and has begun to receive, the kind of critical re-evaluation that Derbyshire has attained recently." http://www.openculture.com/2016/06/4-women-who-pioneered-electronic-music-daphne-oram-laurie-spiegel-eliane-radigue-pauline-oliveros.html

Rocket 88 shared Pink Floyd's photo.

On this day, 48 years ago, Pink Floyd released their second album, A Saucerful of Secrets. Sporting a cover design by Hipgnosis - their first for the band - the album included a track which featured David Gilmour as well as Syd Barrett, the only track to do so. Do you know which one they both play on though?
