Vale one of the Cool Pioneer Nerds

This gent is Tristram Cary -

And unfortunately he died last week. He wrote music for Dr Who, amongst a stack of other stuff which I wish I knew, but only just read about here. In the list of recordings he made, is the tantalising -

Devils' Planets, The Music of Tristram Cary The Daleks - The Daleks' Masterplan - The Mutants BBC Worldwide WMSF

and also

Blood from the Mummy's Tomb
(all tracks) GDI Records (UK) GDICD 019

And how fabulous is this computer - the VCS-3 (Voltage Controlled Studio with 3 oscillators) - which he co-designed:
