White Noise: An Electric Storm (Vinyl LP)
White Noise came into being when David Vorhaus, an American electronics student with a passion for experimental sound + classical music attended a lecture by Delia Derbyshire, a sound scientist at the BBC’s Radiophonic Workshop whose claim to fame was writing the original Doctor Who theme tune.
With the help of fellow Radiophonic Workshop composer Brian Hodgeson, Vorhaus and Derbyshire hunkered down at Kaleidophon Studios in Camden to pen an album that reconciled pop music with the experimental avant-garde.
The result is a set of eerie, delightful songs that, for all their surface simplicity, shimmer with vestigial synthesiser swells, strange echoes, disembodied voices, + distant music-box trills.
