1. SCENE & HEARD
1. FOURTH DIMENSION
Two essential recordings from Radiophonic Workshop members Paddy Kingsland & Peter Howell get the reissue treatment with the vinyl only release of Kingsland’s exceptional 1973 album Fourth Dimension, alongside fellow member Peter Howell’s ARP synth opus, 1978’s Through A Glass Darkly[MOVLP1036]. Both of these albums have been crate diggers’ gold for many years and are reissued for the very first time.
The BBC Radiophonic Workshop came together in 1958 to produce music and sound effects for BBC Radio and Television programmes using hand built, custom designed electronic, tape and electro- acoustic techniques. By the mid-1970s, the synthesiser era was well-and-truly here, with the Workshop increasingly being asked to provide theme tunes and background music for TV and radio.
Fourth Dimension is a landmark in synthesiser music and covers a broad spectrum of styles. Listening now it fits very well into the then craze for electronic, textural, spacey synthesiser music.
