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.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
