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.
