Wendy Carlos's 80th birthday

Wow! Wendy Carlos turned 80 on November 11, 2019!

Happy birthday, dear Wendy! Your Switched on Bach album really impressed me incredibly when I first heard it in my teen years! My brother had the vinyl and the cover had your former name on it. ๐Ÿ˜‰

It's a timeless masterpiece and was groundbraking. It still is, in some ways. It sounds still fresh every time I hear it. I love it!

But not only this work! The original Tron soundtrack1!! And all your contributions with Bob Moog and for the Moog company and us synthesizer lovers … Thank you so so much for everything!
