Lily Greenham was a performer and early pioneer of "concrete poetry". She used her voice in ways that genuinely hadn't been explored before, cutting, splicing, pitching and effecting it, making tones and chopping out syllables until words were barely even audible as words anymore, and occasionally punctuated these sounds with electronics or concrete recordings to create experimental compositions like nothing else at the time. The best point of reference at the moment would be Maja Ratkje who has a similar desire to explore the experimental potential of her own voice, but what Greenham manages is particularly stunning. Falling somewhere in-between Dadaist poetry and the early electronic explorations of Daphne Oram or Delia Derbyshire, what sets Greenham apart from the others is her desire to include the voice.

Take 'Polar Polaris' for example, a menacing, hissing eight-minute piece of glorious electronic noise, based on two filtered words, or 'Experience', a peculiar two-minute play on words with synthesizer from the BBC Radiophonic Workshop's Paddy Kingsland.
