The 1982 hit 'She Blinded Me with Science' might never have come about if Thomas Dolby hadn't found "the guts" of a Powertran Transcendent 2000 synthesiser in a dumpster as a teenager. Dolby's life so far has been a catalogue of serendipity in action - from making music with technology to making music for technology to now teaching arts at a presti gious American university.
