"happens over a weekend (14th - 17th) in May at the Camden Roundhouse. Touch night on the Saturday (16th). Thursday has Can's Holger Czukay playing live, apparently kicking things off with a homage to Stockhausen before moving onto unheard Can material as well as his solo stuff.
"Friday night is taken over by Barcelona's Sonar Festival, no idea of the line up though. The festival draws to a close on Sunday night with the legendary BBC Radiophonic Workshop. We're most excited by the prospect of a live performance from the electronic pioneers. Get. Your. Tickets. Now."
Roundhouse > Whats On > The Radiophonic Workshop
"The BBC Radiophonic Workshop was founded in 1958, and closed its doors 40 years later. Throughout its life, and since its closure, it has been enormously influential on generations of musicians, with the names of composers such as Delia Derbyshire, John Baker, Brian Hodgson, Dick Mills, Paddy Kingsland and Peter Howell taking on almost legendary status.
"Stlll pioneering, in 2002 four ex-members re-formed to create the soundtrack for “Generic Sci Fi Quarry”, an event held over three nights in a quarry in Oxfordshire. Now, they get together again to explore Radiophonics past, present, and future. Old and new innovative electronica for a large arena combines with live performance and multimedia projections. An event not to be missed."
