More Delia Derbyshire…

posted by on July 21 at 17:54 PM

Paul scooped me on this one (see below) so I’ll provide a few extra links. First, Delia beat matching … probably sometime around the Summer of Love.

I like to think this video gives a little weight to Brian Eno’s suggestion (can’t find the reference) that the invention of the digital sampler was merely a mechanical innovation, as opposed to an aesthetic or functional one. Tape Loops 4 Eva!

More of Ms. Derbyshire’s work can be heard at her “official website.”

P.S. The original Doctor Who theme song is sublime. Fact.

Now we know, going by the third machine-loop, where Orbital came up with "Chime".

Every generation needs a Delia Derbyshire.
