Pioneering early electronic music in #HungerGames

I’ve always had an interest in electronic music since I first came across Wendy Carlos and Switched on Bach, so I’m always interested to come across someone new. Yesterday I stumbled across Laurie Spiegel, who worked at Bell Labs, and in addition to composing created algorithmic composition software called Music Mouse.
   She’s currently receiving attention because an early composition of hers, Sediment, features in the current hit movie The Hunger Games.
