Oramics to Electronica

Electronic sound didn’t just happen it was created by women and men, most often at the margins of what was musically acceptable and technically possible. New instruments such as synthesisers and samplers changed the sounds musicians could make, and influenced the way they composed and performed their music. This exhibition focuses on the work of three British studios that produced electronic music in the 1960s and 1970s: Daphne Oram, the BBC Radiophonic Workshop and Electronic Music Studios (EMS). At the heart of the exhibition you can see the amazing Oramics Machine, a proto-synthesiser developed by Oram in the 1960s and 1970s. Visit Oramics to Electronica to trace the history of electronic music and discover the boundless creativity of the musicians and engineers involved.
