Guest Lecture: Tristram Cary

Tristram Cary, 80 this year, holds a unique place in contemporary
music. While serving as a wartime naval radar officer in 1945, he
independently conceived the idea of electronic and tape music, and is
thus a world pioneer in this field. Cary was founder (in 1967) of the
electronic music studio at the Royal College of Music, and designer/
builder of own electronic music facility, one of the longest
established private studios in the world. Beginning in Marylebone, it
went to Earls Court, then Chelsea and eventually to Fressingfield,
Suffolk. The equipment from this studio was brought to Australia, and
most of it was incorporated into the expanding teaching studio at
Adelaide University. Cary was also a founder Director of EMS (London)
Ltd, and co-designer of the VCS3 (Putney) Synthesiser and other EMS
products. His contribution to concert and entertainment musical
repertoire in every genre from pure electronic music to instrumental
solos and orchestral and choral works covers the entire second half
of the 20th century, and is now moving actively into the 21st.
