Tonight in the Explorers Room: In Search of New Languages – Women in Electronic Music (Commercial & Mystic – All Dreams Are Not For Sale)


First off: Holger Czukay, one of the great musical heroes of our time, is gone and will be profoundly missed.  There are a lot of musical tributes floating around this week but I humbly recommend giving my own Czukay-centric Explorers Room a listen, part of a three-part Can series I did in 2015.  The pool just got less cool, the dancing spot a little less hot.  Goodbye Holger Czukay, thanks for everything.

Tonight in the Explorers Room we will hear the fourth and (for now) final installment in our series on the great women of electronic music. This evening will encompass a wide variety of approaches, from commercial to mystic to Oramic, with all the meditation, provocation, and pure exploratory research such a spread implies.  Heavily (but not exclusively) featuring: the great and only lady of Oramics, Daphne Oram; another BBC Radiophonic legend, Delia Derbyshire; and the liquid sublimity of Suzanne Ciani.  Tune in, join in the comments, hang out.

The study of sound and its relationship to life
