derbe derby

31. März 2009 BNCKD

this one´s blowin´my mind lately.
delia derbyshire - an english musician, who was kinda famous for her work on BBC radiophonic workshop, various electronic compositions and treatments, her band “white noise” and other weird stuff. this video right here shows her manipulating and synchronizing studio tape machines….40 years ago!
as far as i know, only musique concrete composer pierre schaeffer did similar stuff with tape machines, turntables (yes long before grandwizard…) and the mellotron.
anyway, see and hear for yourself - this girl had a very, very special approach to music making…
