Muse Appretiation: Delia Derbyshire

Delia Derbyshire was a pionier in what we call electronica music. She worked for the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, that created experimental eletonic sounds for the British media service of the 1960’s and 70’s. Oh yeah.. she even was at the time uncedited for making this..

Here’s some rare footage of her in the Radiophonics lab, where there worked with that big reel to reel tape machines.

in fact it was just recently discoverd this bit of tape that may just me the first modern techno dance track.. seriously! http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/7512490.stm

truly ahead of her time!
