This album features compositions she made on synthesizers and tape machines over the course of all those years. In 2019, Janet Beat was awarded the first Scottish Women in Music Lifetime Achievement Award, a prize that now bears her name. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
