He was a pioneer in electronic music, having become inspired by his WWII Royal Navy training in radar, and was instrumental in the invention of the synthesizer. He had created electronic music since the mid 1950s, and founded the electronic music studio at the Royal College of Music in 1967. He composed over 70 concert works, of which 29 make use of electronic instrumentation. He wrote the "Illustrated Compendium of Musical Terminology", considered a bible for electronica.
