(Redirected from Wendy Carlos)
Wendy Carlos (born Walter Carlos; November 14, 1939) is a leading proponent of synthesized music, traditional and newly composed, especially for a series of recordings of J.S. Bach and other Baroque composers: Switched On Bach (1968), The Well-Tempered Synthesizer, (1969), and others. Carlos's albums popularized the music of Bach, Claudio Monteverdi, Domenico Scarlatti, and others and introduced electronic synthesizers to the general public in a way that was enthusiastically received.
Carlos also did the score for three motion pictures, being, A Clockwork Orange, The Shining, and Tron.
Carlos came out as transgender in 1979, and still got hired for future projects.
