Delia Derbyshire, godmother of the “Doctor Who” theme

One of the true innovators of electronic music. And yes, she’s the person who “realised” (arranged, performed) the Doctor Who theme.

From wikipedia: “In August 1962 she assisted composer Luciano Berio at a two-week summer school at Dartington Hall, for which she borrowed several dozen items of equipment from the BBC. One of her first works, and the most widely known, was her 1963 electronic realization of a score by Ron Grainer for the theme tune of the Doctor Who series, one of the first television themes to be created and produced by entirely electronic means.”

I’m even more stoked about the origin of this theme know.  I had no idea a woman, practically a pioneer of electronic music, is the person responsible for creating the very first rendition of the Doctor Who theme that aired on television.  [via Doctor Who Tumblr]

See you in Los Angeles everyone.  In the meantime, ponder how far ahead/or not the Japanese may be ahead of us in burrito vending machine technology.  [via Geekosystem & Tastetheburritobox]
