    Default 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.
