Daphne Oram's Oramics Post BBC Synthesizer

Oramics from Nick Street on Vimeo.

"A brief glimpse of Daphne Oram's pioneering and unique 'Oramics' synthesiser, designed in 1957 after she left the legendary BBC Radiophonic Workshop to pursue the project.

The machine, recently acquired by Goldsmiths College, is now in the hands of The Science Museum in London and is currently being restored. It hasn't been performed since the 1970s.
