The official page for the Radiophonic Workshop. Founded in 1958 by Desmond Briscoe and Daphne Oram, the BBC Radiophonic Workshop was home to a maverick group of experimental composers and musical innovators. In a series of small studios within the labyrinthine corridors of the BBC Maida Vale complex, the Workshop explored new ways of using - and abusing - sound technology. Now, more than 15 years after the Workshop was decommissioned by the BBC, original members Peter Howell, Roger Limb, Dick Mills, Paddy Kingsland and archivist Mark Ayres are working together again. A forthcoming album - Electricty - and a live show spanning their extraordinary 55 year career mark the rebirth of this influential experimental group of musicians.
