Geek Girls: Hannah M.G. Shapero

Hannah Shapero è il mio nuovo mito. Figlia del compositore Harold Shapero a 14 anni ascoltava Frank Zappa e componeva musica con il synth modulare Buchla 100. Quello che ha registrato presso lo studio della Brandeis University tra il 1968 e il 1969 è racchiuso in My name is Marietta Cashman.

Hannah M.G. Shapero & Buchla 100 - adoro il suo look space/nerd! - 1970

"From 1967 through 1970 my father, composer Harold Shapero, was director of the Brandeis University electronic music studio. The studio was equipped with a Buchla 100 modular synthesizer, which was at the time the state of the art. Though I was not a Brandeis student, but still in high school, my father allowed and encouraged me to work with the Buchla in the studio. I started working there when I was 14 and continued until I was 17. The portrait you see of me with the Buchla was taken (by my father) in 1970." via
