Check out this recently discovered fragment of techno-like electronic music created in the late 1960s by Delia Derbyshire (of Doctor Who theme tune fame).

Note the way that at the beginning of the track she says "Ah, forget about this. This is for interest only", downplaying her work in characteristic female fashion.

When I was a child, watching Doctor Who after school every day and completely entranced by the opening theme, I assumed this music had been made by a man. Who wouldn't? Hadn't everything around us been made by men?
