Wendy Carlos's contribution to the fields of electronic music, sound design, and alternate tunings makes her one of the most intersting composers from the 20th Century. We agree with the statement on her official website: It is certain that her music will be included among the major milestones of 20th century music.
Notable movie soundtracks include:
- Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange and The Shining (based on Stephen King's novel of the same name),
- Disney's Tron.
Notable musical experiments:
- The pairing of Carlos and "Weird Al" Yankovic on a rendition of Peter and the Wolf,
- Switched-on Bach.
- Wendy Carlos is also a notable amateur artist. See her pastel drawing of Grace Kelly here,
- Carlos was born as Walter Carlos and became Wendy Carlos after undergoing a sex-change procedure in the late 1960s, though her albums of that era were still released under the name of Walter Carlos.
