Maddalena Fagandini (1929-2012) was an electronic musician and television producer. She was employed by the bbc
in the early 50s as part of their Italian Service before becoming part of the pioneering bbc radiophonic workshop
in 1959. Her work with the Radiophonic Workshop involved creating jingles and interval signals, using musique concrète
techniques, for BBC radio and television. In 1962 one of her interval signals was re-worked by future Beatles producer George Martin
and released, under the pseudonym “Ray Cathode”, as “Time Beat”. She left the Workshop in 1966, following the introduction of synthesisers, to become a television producer and director.
