Raymond Scott was not particularly influential. In fact, I never
heard of him until just recently. Scott was certainly a pioneer, but
he was so secretive about his inventions that very few people knew
about them. A notable exception was Bob Moog, but even then Bob cites
Don Buchla for giving him the idea for a step sequencer, even though
Scott had invented one years before.
