Turing and Strachey's musical recordings restored


Researchers in New Zealand have succeeded in restoring the first recording of computer-generated music – made by Alan Turing and Christopher Strachey when they were working together in the early 1950s.

Christopher Strachey (1916–1975) was a pioneering computer scientist and the founder of the Programming Research Group, now part of the Department of Computer Science.

If you would like to know more about Strachey and his work with Turing, do come to the Strachey 100 Centenary Conference, which has been organized to celebrate the centenary of Strachey’s birth. To book, visit this link:
