Relistening :: White Noise - An Electric Storm [1969]

The late 1960s experimental group, White Noise, helped typify the start of electronic music. The band was made up of electronic pioneers; Delia Derbyshire, David Vorhaus, Brian Hodgson, and Mark Jenkins. They all worked closely and were well-known due to their relation to the famous BBC Radiophonic Workshop. Through the Unit Delta Plus, an organization that was intended to use, create and promote electronic music, Delia helped set up the Kaleidophon studio in London, which was later where the band produced their debut album, An Electric Storm. It is considered to be the most valuable and influential record in the development of electronic music, showcasing sounds that are hard to believe to be created during that time. Below are three of my favorites off the album, which you can DL at its entirety HERE.

White Noise - Love Without Sound
White Noise - My Game of Loving
