Daphne Oram (December 31, 1925 – January 23, 2003) worked for the BBC from 1943, first as a sound engineer, later as the co-founder and director of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. Oram left the BBC for good in 1959, moving to [l=Tower Folly], an oast house she had purchased in Kent, in order to make her own music, beyond just creating sounds to be used as special effects. She also created a musical machine that converted pictures into sound, known as Oramics, which she later continued working on with the onset of the home computer revolution in 1981. After suffering a stroke in 1994, she was forced to give up her work, and retired to a nursing home where she died on 23 January 2003, aged 77.
