White Noise//An Electric Storm//50 Years

ES50

The groundbreaking White Noise album, An Electric Storm, is celebrated this Saturday at The British Library.

Organised by our friends at Delia Derbyshire Day, there are a series of events planned throughout the day, including a contribution from Delia’s bandmates Brian Hodgson and David Vorhaus.

The day will also include a special screening of a 20 minute audio feature produced by Lead Researcher and Curator of the Delia audio archive in Manchester, David Butler. This includes contributions from Adrian Utley (Portishead), Martyn Ware (The Human League, BEF, Heaven 17), Chris+Cosey (Throbbing Gristle), and our own Ian Campbell.

Born out of the ashes of Unit Delta Plus, White Noise formed when Delia Derbyshire and Brian Hodgson met and started to work with David Vorhaus. Sessions held late at night in the BBC Radiophonic Workshop in Maida Vale eventually gave birth to the seminal album, An Electric Storm.

A true electronic music pioneer and innovator, David has continued his unique musical journey with further White Noise releases over the years, and is now joined in White Noise by fellow sound artist Mike Painter.

White Noise will be playing some tracks from An Electric Storm, along with more contemporary pieces. The perfect way to celebrate Delia’s birthday.

A big thank you to everyone that came along to yesterdays sound installation. It was another great turnout. Below are a few pics and clips from the day.

The event was a taster for Deliaphonic, which is next Saturday, the 5th May. Headline this year is White Noise, the band Delia was a part of in 1969. Not to be missed!
