About the Artist

The BBC Radiophonic Workshop, set up in 1958, was originally created as a sound effects unit for BBC Radio and TV programmes. Pioneering new forms of drama during the late 1950's and early 60's demanded innovative and original use of music and sound. The art of what became known as sound-design began in the cramped underground studios of the Radiophonic Workshop at the BBC Maida Vale complex in London. Their early explorations into sound drew on the principles of early tape manipulation techniques and primitive oscillators and tone circuits built by technicians at the workshop. As technology developed and the synthesizer, tape technology, computers and early digital sampling emerged the Radiophonic Workshop maintained their position at the leading edge of electronic music and sound design. The vast body of work that emerged between 1960 and 1997 has influenced generations of musicians both within electronica and more widely in the Rock, Progressive and Pop field. Groundbreaking work such as Delia Darbyshire's 1963 Doctor Who Theme, sound effects albums, works of early electronica and popular favourites such as Blake's 7 and The Hitchhiker's Guide To the Galaxy have ensured the RWS a place at electronica's top table. From the Beatles, Pink Floyd and Vangelis to Orbital, The Chemical Brothers and beyond, their legacy lives on in the sounds and textures of so much contemporary music. This record, recorded in 1975, was released at the height of The Radiophonic Workshop's influence. It showcases the dawning of processed sound, treated sounds and sound design. 'The Radiophonic Work-shop' from 1975 was a compilation of the best-known of the Radiophonic Workshop's output to date. This is the first time it has seen a vinyl reissue in its original form. The album has been remastered for vinyl from the original tapes by the Radiophonic Workshop's archivist Mark Ayres. Pressed on 180 gram audiophile vinyl.
