Wendy Carlos is the performer who produced "Switched-On Bach", the
soundtrack for "A Clockwork Orange", "Sonic Seasonings", and a bunch of
other amazing recordings created on single-voice Moog synthesizers, using
multi-track tape recorders equipped with the sound-with-sound feature, to
build upwards of dozens of simultaneous chords and parts.
