Cut ups, mash-ups, circuit bending, tape-mangling and, oh yeah, the Dr. Who theme.
One of the true innovators of electronic music. And yes, she’s the person who “realised” (arranged, performed) the Doctor Who theme.
From wikipedia: “In August 1962 she assisted composer Luciano Berio at a two-week summer school at Dartington Hall, for which she borrowed several dozen items of equipment from the BBC. One of her first works, and the most widely known, was her 1963 electronic realization of a score by Ron Grainer for the theme tune of the Doctor Who series, one of the first television themes to be created and produced by entirely electronic means.”
The Doctor used to be someone kids could grow up with, and look up to. What happened? Oh, right.
Can we please just spread this across the internet like wildfire?
I’m honestly sick of seeing all the racist comments directed at her. Come on guys this lady was a fucking badass.
She is the fucking queen
Martha Jones is a star.
Say what you want about avatar, but at least it has multiple examples of the avatar being women and/or PoC, unlike a certain other show with a reincarnating character who somehow is always a white guy.
So I turned on BBC America and what’s on? The worst part of Journey’s End.
It’s too early in the morning for this :/
so you’re telling me there’s an alien who regenerates into a completely random form, that he cannot control or determine himself, and who understandably could take millions of different appearances, but who all 13 times just turned into a different skinny white guy
I think this is it.
I think this is my favorite post on tumblr.
