Released:
Label: Aperture
The late Daphne Oram's work was not well understood in her time; a co-founder of the BBC Radiophonic workshop in 1958, she left the following year to follow her avant-garde instincts and construct a bizarre, one-of-a-kind synthesizer called the Oramics Machine. Granted access to Oram's archive of tapes, Andrea Parker massages them into queasy drones and soundscapes. Glitchy electro rhythms lend a distracting contemporary touch in places, but for the most part her dark ambient atmospheres pay tribute to the timelessness of Oram's music.
