"Love Without Sound", White Noise

White Noise is an experimental electronic music band formed in London, England in 1969 by American-born David Vorhaus, a classical bass player with a background in both physics and electronic engineering. He was initially joined by BBC Radiophonic Workshop composers Delia Derbyshire and Brian Hodgson, both ex of electronic music project Unit Delta Plus.

In 1969 White Noise released the groundbreaking album An Electric Storm on Island Records. The album was created using a variety of tape manipulation techniques, and is notable for its early use of the first British synthesizer, the EMS Synthi VCS3. Amongst many oddities, the first track on the album, “Love Without Sound”, employed sped-up tape edits of Vorhaus playing the double bass to create violin and cello sounds.


The Delian Mode, a short documentary by Kara Blake about Radiophonic workshop pioneer Delia Derbyshire. Would love to see it!

tetsuota-desu said: Hey. Just thought I'd let you know, that last photo isn't Delia, it's actually Elizabeth Parker who was at the Workshop a few years after Delia.

Ack, sorry - I was in a complete daze yesterday and it was tagged “Delia Derbyshire”. I had my doubts but I reblogged it anyway. I’ll leave it up but caption it saying it’s Elizabeth Parker. Thank you. :)
