Delia Derbishire and Daphne Oram wore the best clothes of their decade, while inventing both the electronic genre and DJ culture we enjoy today!
I found out about these two ladies a couple of months ago and I have been smitten ever since! I saw a video of how Daphne magically painted the musical waves on a piece of glass and entered into a magical machine.
They both started out working at BBC broadcasting during the late 1950s and early 1960s.
It very interesting they both came into electronic music at the same time.
Delia focused on more surreal science fiction tunes while. She stayed on at BBC making music for Dr. Who, while Daphne left the BBC early opened and created "Oramics" which is all about taking classical elements of music and twisting them into something shiny and new.
I cant believe how timeless their work is, see for your self:
