Ruth White

Profile:
Ruth White (b. 1925 Pittsburgh) is an American electronic music pioneer, most notably for her early explorations of sound using the moog synthesizer. According to the back cover of her 1971 release Short Circuits, “Ruth White is considered among today’s most gifted arbiters of what is termed ‘the new music’.” With a string of recordings in the mid 1960's/early 1970's - most notably “Seven Trumps From The Tarot Card And Pinions” (1968), “Flowers of Evil” (1969), and “Short Circuits” (1970) - featured surprising and new uses of the Moog Synthesizer as well as other pieces of electronic musical equipment. While her use of technology was the focal point in the late 1960's, most of her career was dedicated to educational recordings.

The queen of early electronica. Her sounds were all unique in it's dark, experimental glory. Though she has stated herself that she never tried to make creepy music, but just to show what her equipment can do. Her entire discography would be a good choice, not only for those interested in Ruth White, but also for exploring the history of electronic music in general.
