The Resurection

The BBC’s Radiophonic Workshop, which created theme tunesand sound effects for programmes and  was known for its pioneering use of electronic sounds, is to reopen after 14 years.

One of his first commissions is  “sonic memorial” to the BBC’s Bush House building which, until recently, was the home of the World Service. His first work for The New Radiophonic Workshop takes audio from 25 previous projects featured on the website – from theatre performances to poetry readings – creating a “curious murmur of activity”.

It can be heard by clicking on a button labelled “listen to The Space” at the top of any page on this website.
