Radiophonic Workshop at London Electronic Arts Festival

Doctor Who News has a sweet exclusive -  lots of DW alumni from the Radiophonic Workshop (Dick Mills, Paddy Kingsland, Peter Howell, Roger Limb, and Mark Ayres) are going to be performing  at the London Electronic Arts Festival, 2 pm the 9th of November. Tickets are £16.50.

"The concert, at the Shoreditch Electric Light Station in Coronet Street, will not only include music ranging from Doctor Who to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, it will also feature archive video from Doctor Who and many other programmes for which the Workshop provided sound design and music. It will be a 5.1 surround sound show and will feature The Doctor Who Suite - part of which will bring Derbyshire's original 1963 theme together with Howell's 1980 reimagining of it in one 15-minute presentation."

The link has a lot of info about vinyl and digital rereleases of the Radiophonic Workshop back catalogue as well. Among others, "The Workshop will also be putting out very limited issues of rare and unreleased tracks from the archives, including some rare Doctor Who moments and a remixed and reimagined version of the original Doctor Who theme realised by Derbyshire. This has been produced from her original tapes and will be the first stereo version of the track to appear."

And since we're speaking of Delia Derbyshire...
