About this photo

The Oramics Machine is a music synthesiser that was created by electronic music pioneer Daphne Oram. The waveforms of the notes were painted onto glass, and 35mm film was painted with shapes that were used to determine the notes. She co-founded the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, but the Oramics Machine was more often used for commercial commissions. The sounds it makes are nevertheless reminiscent of early Dr Who. The machine was on show at the Science Museum in London.
