The reissue of the 1968 BBC Radiophonic Workshop’s hugely influential 10th anniversary album, featuring
remastered early electronic works of John Baker, David Cain and Delia Derbyshire.
Widely regarded as a major influence on the development of electronic music worldwide, BBC Radiophonic Music is
a compilation of short works, often composed as intros to various radio or television programs. Conceived in a time
when analogue sampling meant hours of slicing tape with razor blades, BBC Radiophonic Music is brimming with
zippy themes, unsettling atmospherics, riffs, loops, clicks and beeps. Insanely catchy yet deeply sinister, this is
‘collage music’, produced, according to Desmond Briscoe of BBC Radiophonic Workshop, “with the intention of
entertaining rather than informing”.
This is an essential album for analogue and TV theme obsessives, and anyone with an interest in contemporary
electronica; mysterious, eccentric and celestial, it is a celebration of one of the UK's most treasured and unique
