Tristram Cary - UK Electronic Composer

The other day I found an interesting documentary about an electronic music pioneer called Tristram Cary. This guy was creating bizzare ambient electronic music in the 1950's using his own built synthesizers and sophisticated tape splicing techniques. He then went on to be one of the co-founders of the EMS synthesizer company.

Everything is explained in the documentary, and it is well worth watching if you are interested in this sort of thing. You can view each part using the following links.

Part 1
Part 2
Part 3

At the time of writing Tristram is 81 years old and is still recording. His personal website is here. I might try and get hold of some of his recordings. They sound quite good from the videos.
