Wendy Carlos (born Walter Carlos November 14, 1939) was an American composer and electronic musician. Carlos' fame originated in the late 1960s with recordings made on the Moog Synthesizer, which was a relatively new and unknown instrument at the time; most notable were L.P.'s of synthesized Bach, and the soundtrack for the film "A Clockwork Orange".

Before his sex change, Walter and musician Benjamin Folkman, had a 1969 top 40 hit record in Sydney and in some parts of NSW (I don't think it charted elsewhere in Oz). The song was an edited single version of the album track "Brandenburg Concerto No.3" from the album "Switched-On Bach" which was the winner of three 1969 Grammy Awards.

The single version has not made it to CD anywhere in the world as far as I can tell.
