Yes, beautiful woman... but that was 40 years ago.

A pioneer. Yet we never heard of her in our music history class.

Great thread.

My whole day so far is about Delia Derbyshire.

I cannot believe my ears.

Or my eyes...

She is (was) downright gorgeous.

This morning has changed my outlook on electronic music a bit.

waaaaaaah! that is so cool! you can actually see the tape looping, the little light splotch on it going 'round!

i'm sure i'm showing my (lack of) age by being so impressed by that, but i had never thought of a "loop" as an actual physical loop of tape before!

At Mills College we had two custom made loop machines. They were playback only devices that had no supply or takeup reel motors. The heads were face up so you could hang any sized look over the heads and just hang and empty tape reel on the bottom. You could even feed one loop across the two machines.

All this stuff is easy today on a computer. Maybe though, it isn't as much fun.

Still, in those days we knew digital audio was coming and looked forward to it enthusiastically. Most of us now-old-timers don't wane nostalgic for tape.

Bebe Barron

Rlainhart already mentioned her, but maybe some of our younger members aren't aware of her. She, and her husband, are credited with the first all electronic music film score for a major movie, Forbidden Planet.

If you haven't seen Forbidden Planet, then you MUST put this on your list of must dos. This score is, IMHO, the best score ever done for any move, period. I just saw the movie again a few nights ago for the umpteenth time on TCM. It's not just a bunch of sound effects, it's has dramatic intensity.

The Barrons' music is a great influence on my music. I even wrote a piece of Krellian music, and I hope to do more in the future. See http://electro-music.com/forum/topic-2540.html

By the way, I saw an interview of Bebe once. She said "I did all the work and my husband got all the credit." (more or less)

A bit of "forbidden planet" with some of the characteristic sounds, remember it's 1957 !

I have to add to this list Hedy Lamarr. She was not technically a musican, but she was certainly an electro-lady, more appropriately an electro-babe.

Hedy was, of course, a big Hollywood Film Star, a sex symbol. One of her monikers was "the most beautiful girl in the world", and she has the credit for being the first woman to appear nude in a motion picture. If she wasn't the most beautiful girl in the world, she certainly was one of the most glamorous.

Posted Image, might have been reduced in size. Click Image to view fullscreen.

Anyway, she and composer George Anthiel are were given the first patent for what is now called spread spectrum communication, the basis for cell phones, wifi, and much more.

Here's one of many articles about this. http://www.inventions.org/culture/female/lamarr.html

Funny, I posted something about Hedy Lamarr one electro-music.com a few years ago. Then, most of the stuff on the web was about her movie career. Now, there seems to be a lot more than there was about her invention.

At SUNY Albany, where I studied with Joel Chadabe, we had four of these. A fellow student, Andy Aldrich, was a master of loop music - I remember a live performance he did in the art gallery at school that used all the loop players set up on the second floor of the gallery, which overlooked the main area. He set up the players so that the loops hung over the railing into the main space, which let him use loops up to about 30 long - about 60 feet of tape in total for each one, but all slightly different lengths so they phased against each other as they played.

On the topic of 'lectro ladies" ... the following link takes you to a thread about a lady with quite a bit of electronic stuff:

http://electro-music.com/forum/topic-3019.html

and here is the direct link:

http://www.cikira.com/gear

I can't say that I've heard any of her music however a look at her studio is memorable.

Alice Sheilds and Pril Smiley both studied and worked with Vladimir Ussachevsky at Columbia University. Both composed with tape and the Buchla box.
