Obituary : Max Mathews - music pioneer
Not many people will have heard of him, and perhaps not everyone will agree that he should even be mentioned as a musician, however the effects of his pioneering work on synthesising music on computers are far-reaching, ubiquitous and iconoclastic.

I'm glad to know of him.
Double posting showed the boundaries he crossed..where do we start the thread about Lev Termen aka Leon Theremin I wonder?

Not the tannerin, although I think it is the real thing on [shudder] Midsomer Murders....not that I've watched beyond the opening credits, he said hurriedly.
such a great pic I couldn't resist posting it. Max wouldn't mind...
