    Abstract

    Third place entry in the Science Museum OraMIX competition - the following text is from the Science Museum blog: 'On October 10th 2011 the Science Museum opened the exhibition Oramics to Electronica: Revealing Histories of Electronic Music. One of the key objects in this exhibition is the Oramics Machine, a unique instrument made by composer and musician Daphne Oram. As part of this exhibition that celebrates music, inventiveness and the search for new sounds we wanted to give people the opportunity to share their own musical creativity. We invited people from all over the world to remix samples from the Daphne Oram Archive. We challenged them to create a soundtrack for the 1967 TV Programme Our World, the first television production performed and broadcast live, from studios across the world. Musicians and producers Brian Eno and DJ Spooky as well as music magazine The Wire were kind enough to be our star judges. Our number three, with only 0.3 points difference was obe:lus. DJ Spooky said of his track Satellite Oramix: ?Great use of the stems from the original material, and it?s a beautiful track that lets you hear how poly-valent Daphne Oram?s work is. Polyrhythm plus the beautiful use of the original material made this track a standout.? Brian Eno said:?I keep humming it.?'
