Notes

New from Langham Research Centre, Tape Works Vol. 1 stands alone as a collection of modern musique concrète. Created with rare and obsolete machinery and inspired by early electronic composers including John Cage, Alvin Lucier, Delia Derbyshire and Daphne Oram, Tape Works Vol. 1 is the modern incarnation of the work of the original BBC Radiophonic Workshop.

Tape Works Vol. 1 documents the origins of Langham Research Centre as a late night experimental gathering in BBC Studios, through to their present day long-form radiophonic works including The Dark Tower, inspired by the life and work of Nikola Tesla, and Muffled Ciphers, inspired by J G Ballard’s most experimental novel The Atrocity Exhibition (1970). From doors to laughter, field recordings and found sound, nothing is out of bounds on this unique sonic journey.

Langham Research Centre work with reel to reel tape recorders, gramophone cartridges, wave oscillators and more to produce new work for these instruments, as well as creating authentic performances of early electronic music.
