Wendy Carlos:
Was a musical prodigy who started piano lessons at six and had composed her first classical work at age ten
Built her own computer at age 14 in 1953, before most people knew what a computer was, and won a scholarship for it
Helped Dr. Robert Moog work on his earlier synthesizers, providing technical assistance and convincing him to give the Moog synthesizer touch sensitivity
Her breakthrough album, Switched on Bach, won four Grammy awards, started a craze for synthesized music, and remained on the Billboard Classical Album top 200 chart for over a year
Composed music for the movies A Clockwork Orange, The Shining, and the original Tron 
Collaborated with “Weird Al” Yankovich on a parody of Peter and the Wolf centred around the importance of oral hygeine
In case this wasn’t enough, she is also an accomplished solar eclipse photographer
