Wendy Carlos (born Walter Carols in 1939) is an American musician and composer best known for her electronic music and film scores. Born in Rhode Island, Carols studied physics and music at Brown University before going to New York in 1962 to study music composition at Columbia. Studying and working with electronic musicians and technicians at the city's Columbia Princeton Electronic Music Center she helped the development of the Moog synthesiser, the first commercially available keyboard instrument created by Robert Moog.
Carlos started to become more known with Switched-On Bach (1968), an album of music by Johann Sebastian Bach performed on a Moog synthesiser, which helped popularise the Moog's use in the 1970s and won her 3 Grammy Awards. She had several more albums and composed the music for two Stanley Kubrick films - A Clockwork Orange (1971) and The Shining (1980) and also Tron (1983) for Walt Disney Productions.
In 1979, Carlos was one of the first public figures to disclose having undergone sex reassignment surgery. She was a pioneer both musically and socially.
