WALLS / ORAM - SOUND HOUSES (LP)


""Sound Houses" is an album that sees WALLS exploring the sonic archive of the late Daphne Oram - composer, inventor and founder of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. Oram's otherworldly sonic experiments with synthesis and music concrete primarily in the 1960s were decades ahead of their time, her musical legacy unjustly overlooked until recent years when the increasing fascination of modern culture with all things analogue has cemented her status internationally as a pioneer and key figure in the development of electronic music and the recording studio. Anglo / italian electronic duo WALLS were permitted to select choice recordings from Daphne's volumous tape archive of sounds following an commission from the BBC - these fearsome otherworldly drones, alien FX and violin and cello-esque tones were harnessed, shaped and sculpted into new forms, with additional augmentation of further synthesiser wash, guitar loops, found sound and treated voice by Walls to create unique new pieces of music that join the dots between 1960 and 2013."
