Ode To Delia preview

We’re more than happy to say, that the second installment of our “Ode To..” series is coming July 17th. With “Ode To Delia” we intend pay tribute to Delia Derbyshire and the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. In addition to the sampling aspect, we wanted to incorporate the Radiophonic Workshop’s overall approach towards creating and manipulating sounds.
To cut the waiting time short, here’s a video and audio preview:



Just in case you’re not familiar with the work of the Radiophonic Workshop, here’s some information on the subject matter:
Created in the late 1950’s, the members Radiophonic workshop crafted beautiful futuristic sounds with the use of tape-recorders, by cutting up individual notes and manipulating the sounds in various ways. Thus, laying the foundation for rudimentary sampling techniques with very limited equipment. Without a doubt, the work of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop has had an enormous impact on modern electronic music in general. To worship their legacy and influence, we decided to dedicate the latest “Ode To…” compilation to Delia Derbyshire and the BBC Radiophonic Workshop.
