Have you heard of Wendy Carlos? She is one of the most important synth pioneers in history, having helped with the development of the Moog synthesizer, and having composed the album 'Switched on Bach', as well as the scores to 'A Clockwork Orange', 'The Shining', and 'Tron'. We've taken the audio from the wonderful interview with her above, and we're going to use it to make our own tracks!

Sample bits from the interview, from the synths she plays, or anything you like, to make your own track.
