Wendy Carlos: The Godmother of Electronic Music

(what's a "Modern Worthy"? click here to find out!)
Whether or not you know composer Wendy Carlos by name, you’ve likely heard her work. At the very least, you’ve benefited from her work to mainstream electronic music. Take a look at some of the most important moments in Carlos’s career below.

Not only is she an electronic music pioneer — she oversaw development of the Moog synthesizer! — but she composed music for A Clockwork Orange, The Shining, and Tron. Most dear to me personally, she collaborated with my personal hero, Weird Al Yankovic.

Hell of a talent.
