BBC Radiophonic Workshop

If you get a chance (like, say, if you happen to stop by my apartment some drear November eve) you (that's right, *you*) should really watch the documentary on the BBC's radiophonic workshop. The amazing Delia Derbyshire is prominently featured in this very quirky (i.e. British) film. I watched it with my musician friend Lindsay (aka Viki), and she was very inspired and it made me very happy. Read more about Delia's significant contributions to electronic muisc. The BBC, and in particular, Delia (or rather, Ms Derbyshire) were responsible for redefining and expanding the interactive space between TV visuals and sonic meaning. We don't know how much we owe to their experimentations.
