The Science Museum London kindly invited me to co-curate the “Oramics to Electronica” exhibition about pioneering electronic music instruments, amongst several more contemporary artists and specialists, since I’ve been using some of such historic music machines in my works via CEM Rotterdam.
Former BBC Radiophonic workshop members Roger Limb, Dick Mills, Steve Marshall, Brian Hodgson and EMS Studio members Peter Zinovieff plus Alan Sutcliffe, all first-hand witnesses of this era so crucial to electronic music development and the entire sound production of nowadays, were also asked for their curatorial advice.
The “Oramics to Electronica” exhibition was suitably opened by Brian Eno in October and ran from 2012 till 2015. There will be a series of podcast on the subject, here are the jingles I composed for them using the EMS VCS-3 and ARP 2500.
“PRS for Music captures Oramics opening”
” M went along (to the Science Museum London) yesterday to film the technicians as they installed the primitive synthesizer, and meet some of the musicians involved in the project…”
in the featured video PRSF’s Anita Awbi had a little chat with yours truly as co-curator to this exhibition
