Reblog – From the Vaults – Daphne Oram And Delia Derbyshire: The BBC Radiophonic Workshop Gallery — Binary Heap

The BBC Radiophonic Workshop, one of the sound effects units of the BBC, was created in 1958 to produce effects and new music for radio, and was closed in March 1998. Daphne Oram was a true pioneer of electronic music and this great gallery of photographs gives some great insight into the work being done at BBC.

Reblog – Mary Ocher‘s Cockeyed, Political Art-Pop ”Questions Everything”

In-depth interview and recommend Mary Ocher’s music – never an outsider.
