Revenge Of The Radiophonic Workshop

If you are a long-term reader of my blogs you will may remember I went to a concert given my ex-members of the BBC’s Radiophonic Workshop.
It was a one-off event as the Workshop had long been disbanded in various cost cutting initiatives, and creating sounds doesn’t need the specialist equipment and skill that was previously employed.

Personally I think this tears the soul out of the soundscapes that encompass the type of production they used to compose for – but hey!

So, it’s great news to hear the Radiophonic Workshop is coming back – abet in an online presence.

BBC News - BBC Radiophonic Workshop revived online
I do hope it proves to be a success.
