Hi. I used to use this blog a lot more than i do now. I don't agree with much of what i've posted here, but such is the nature of time. :) My instagram & facebook are likely to be more up to date.

delia derbyshire, mother of techno

>> Saturday, August 2, 2008

delia derbyshire (1937-2001).

most famous for her uncredited (though not by lack of trying by the credited composer) work on the doctor who theme was an early electronic experimenter and composer.

she worked with brian jones, hendrix and yoko ono, among others.

anyway, this recently discovered recording sounds a whole lot like techno... (early aphex twin, anyone?) but it was made in the 60's!

much more about delia on her site.
more articles here and here.
