Various Artists - BBC Radiophonic Workshop

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. There had been much interest in producing innovative music and sounds to go with the pioneering programming of the era. Often the sounds required for the atmosphere that program makers wished to create were unavailable or non-existent through traditional sources and so some would look to new techniques to produce effects and music for their pieces. Much of this interest drew them to musique concrète and tape manipulation techniques, since using these methods could allow them to create soundscapes suitable for the growing range of unconventional programming.
