  Raymond Scott - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Raymond Scott (September 10, 1908 – February 8, 1994), was a Russian-American composer, orchestra leader, pianist, engineer, recording studio maverick, and electronic instrument inventor.
Scott called his musical style "descriptive jazz," and gave his pieces unusual titles like "New Year's Eve in a Haunted House," "Dinner Music for a Pack of Hungry Cannibals," and "Reckless Night on Board an Ocean Liner." While popular with the public, jazz audiences disdained it as novelty music.
Scott credits himself as inventor of the sequencer (although these electromechanical devices, some with motors moving photocells past lights, bore little resemblance to the all-electronic sequencers of the late sixties).
