TODAY IN TRANS ARTISTS:
Wendy Carlos born November 14, 1939
AKA the mother of modern electronic music
This amazing woman composed and recorded the entire Clockwork Orange soundtrack, yeah, that shit, that amazing stuff, this gal, right here. Also, The Shining, yep. That scary masterpiece, this gal made the music that made you piss.
Her biggest break through album was Switched On Bach(1968) which, yes, is amazing synth-y classical jams.
She began transitioning with the use of hormones in 1968 and has also won like 4 friggin’ awards for being awesome!(actually, mostly for having amazing music which directly equals being friggin’ awesome)
So, if anyone asks you who the biggest bad ass in electronic-acoustic, or just electronic music in general, you tell them Wendy-God-Damn-Carlos
I love the A Clockwork Orange soundtrack to death.
