Who-Ray presents Colin Baker & The Radiophonic Workshop

Tickets are available from www.arconline.co.uk

Saturday 11th June 7pm

ARC, Stockton Arts Centre
Dovecot Street
Stockton on Tees
TS18 1LL

The Radiophonic Workshop members will reflect on their time producing music and sound effects for the BBC in particular their work on hit programme Doctor Who, joined by hosts BBC Tees’ Bob Fischer and former Doctor, Colin Baker.

The Radiophonic Workshop will then give a live performance of Doctor Who: A Journey into Sound.

There’ll also be opportunties to purchase some unique merchandise from the Radiophinic Workshop and autographs (one free autograph is included with the purchase of your ticket.)

Founded in 1958 by Desmond Briscoe and Daphne Oram, the BBC Radiophonic Workshop was home to a maverick group of experimental composers, sound engineers and musical innovators. In a series of small studios within the labyrinthine corridors of the BBC Maida Vale complex, the Workshop explored new ways of using – and abusing – sound.

Drawing on the principles of musique concréte, found sounds, early electronics, oscillators, handmade synths and tape loops the Workshop created the other-worldly soundtrack to some of BBC television and radio’s most iconic programs: The Body in Question, Horizon, Quatermass, Newsround, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Chronicle and of course Delia Darbyshire’s iconic Doctor Who Theme – still the high water mark for British electronic music nearly 50 years after it was recorded.

The influence of the Radiophonic Workshop on popular music has been profound, from The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Pink Floyd to name a few. Along with many of today’s most successful electronic artists and DJs, who have ensured the Radiophonic Work Shop’s albums are amongst the world’s most sampled recorded works, the Workshop’s legacy continues to grow as new generations of musicians discover their rich catalogue of recorded works.

Now, more than 15 years after the Workshop was decommissioned original members Peter Howell, Roger Limb, Dr Dick Mills, Paddy Kingsland and archivist Mark Ayres are back working together.

    As a budding Composer these guys are my inspiration, I wrote a 2000 word essay on their work last year as part of my Degree and the thought of meeting them is amazing.

    I’ve been dying to see the Workshop in action for a very long time (I was lucky enough to have a natter with Dick Mills last year and he hinted that events like this might be few and far between for various reasons), so delighted to see this advertised. Unfortunately this event clashes with another Who event taking place in Oxfordshire that I’ve booked tickets for…!

    Now, I reckon Ben Lett would love this, even though he’s already going I believe?
    I’ve always awaited a chance to meet a Doctor, it’s shameful that I haven’t!
