What did space ships sound like before space ships? What about lasers and robots and time-traveling police boxes? This Sunday during Polyphonic Perversity, join DJ Slip 'n' Slide for a special two hour exploration of the history, accomplishments and legacy of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, the group of eccentric musicians, mathematicians, engineers and artists responsible for some of the most influential sounds in science fiction. Using nothing but magnetic tape, razor blades, and the most primitive, often homemade, tape manipulators, the Radiophonic Workshop dreamed up the sounds of the future. This two-hour broadcast will highlight the music and sounds of the Radiophonic Workshop as well as the legacy of its artists, some of the most important members of the British schools of avant-garde and musique concrète.
sunday, 11/6 at noon
