There was a long thread about pioneers of electronic music on twitter and the usual names cropped up but as is often the case there were names I hadn’t heard of and Jean Eichelberger Ivey is one of those names…shame on me.
On further listening, where have my ears been?
Better late than never for me here –

Jean Eichelberger Ivey (1923 – 2010) founded the Peabody Electronic Music Studio in 1967. Dr. Ivey has a large catalog of works in virtually every medium and is frequently represented on the programs of major orchestras and ensembles.

As some of you may know, I am an electronic artist myself and sometimes I need some time to create things. It’s been a bit quiet here, I know, and my presence elsewhere has been pared back a little as I try to work on some music.
