The pioneering women of electronic music – an interactive timeline #MusicMonday
Back on October 14th The Vinyl Factory made a great post outlining some of the most influential women in electronic music in honor of Ada Lovelace Day. The post features an interactive timeline – check it out here. Seen above is One of our favorite electronic musicians Delia Derbyshire. They write:
Perhaps the most famous and latterly celebrated of all the early electronics pioneers to emerge from the Maida Vale basement where the Radiophonic Workshop operated. A visionary composer of electronic music which remains justly celebrated in a steady stream of archival reissues, Derbyshire will forever go down in pop lore as the woman behind the original Dr Who theme, which in 1963 became one of the first to be produced by entirely electronic means.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
