News: Tom Richards' 'Mini-Oramics' project features on the BBC website

Today sees a main feature on the BBC News website featuring a number of SPR members who have been involved with Tom Richards' fantastic project to create Daphne Oram's Mini-Oramics machine.
"An electronic sequencer and synthesiser has been built based on designs produced more than 40 years ago by electronic music pioneer Daphne Oram.
Ms Oram who died in 2003, co-founded the BBC Radiophonic Workshop and developed a system of creating sounds and compositions using drawings.
The machine is thought to have remained unfinished in her own lifetime.
But experts say the Mini Oramics's approach to composition and performance would have been influential.
Tom Richards, the researcher who finally constructed the machine, told BBC Radio 4's the World at One programme it had helped answer the question: "What if this had come to pass in 1973?""
Full feature is here.
