Electrophon
– A Journey Through Radiophonica.

What is it?
A charity compilation of various artists to celebrate the work of Delia Derbyshire and other electronic pioneers. 13 artists have submitted tracks – see the list and listen below.

The charity:
The artists have agreed that the supported charity will be Delia Derbyshire Day. Profits will go to them once the label has recouped costs.

The cover:
The cover has been produced by our very own nf.orange and is an homage to the original 1968 BBC Radiophonic album. A back cover, CD label and further promotional images will be created. St James Infirmary has already produced the image below.

Details:
The album will have a CD release via Wormhole World in late early May. A press release/pack will be issued prior to this to magazines, blogs etc with the hope of gathering some media coverage.

The artists:

Each artist has created a track using 60/70’s sounds as a starting point. They include both covers, classical pieces and original works. This has given us 13 tracks with a wide variety of styles and sounds that fit together really well. A nice tribute – you can hear them below.

The lead single will be “Metro Musix” by Elizabeth Joan Kelly.

Notes:

Each artist gives agreement that their track will be used for this compilation for both digital download and physical release as appropriate.  The artist retains ownership of the track and can re-use (e.g. further releases, streaming media).
