Stream unheard music by DELIA DERBYSHIRE


Stream previously unreleased music by Delia Derbyshire, ahead of Radiophonic Workshop show at The British Library

Ahead of events at The British Library on 13 October, The Radiophonic Workshop have unveiled previously unreleased music by former colleague, original member and omnipotent queen of electronica Delia Derbyshire.

Named Future Ghosts by the current Radiophonic Workshop, the track is made up of various elements from Delia's lost (and subsequently found) tape archive – over 300 reels discovered in her attic after she died –  worked together into a new track. The pieces of original audio are from tapes that Delia made beyond the BBC for later film and theatre projects - the exact details of which remain lost in the mists of time.
