For International Women’s Day 2015, I joined poet Ian McMillan, writer and mythographer Marina Warner, artist Grayson Perry and singer-songwriter Zara McFarlane for a fascinating, wide-ranging and often surprising discussion on the role of gender in creativity. I spoke about my own creative process and why I became a composer and engineer. I also discuss one of my earliest inspirations to enter the world of electronic music: a small photograph, in Groves Dictionary of Music and Musicians, showing composer Daphne Oram at work on her Oramics Machine.
Read a feature I wrote on Oram for Ada Lovelace Day 2011 – this is a day when women who work with tech are invited to share their thoughts on others who have inspired them.
This radio programme was repeated on International Women’s Day 2016.
