Wendy Carlos

For people who might not know – Wendy Carlos is a trans woman who was deeply influential in early electronic music and hugely involved with the push to have synthesizers seen as real instruments.

Some of the movies Wendy Carlos did the soundtracks for, that you may know:

  • A Clockwork Orange
  • The Shining
  • Tron

She has three Grammys, and a lifetime achievement award from the Society for Electro-Acoustic Music in the United States.

Oh and she also takes photos of eclipses that are so good Nasa uses them.
