It wasn’t all creating strange sounds that imagined both alien and futuristic worlds through sequences of bleeping electronic boffinry, while the history of the legendary BBC Radiophonic Workshop pitches a curtsy and an affectionate nod to its pioneering sound alchemists – Oram, Derbyshire, Hodgson, Baker et al, the studios most alluring work came from its lesser known players one of whom Elizabeth Parker was commissioned with the task of creating an entire sound world to accompany David Attenborough’s award winning ‘the living planet’. Utilising found sounds, synthesizers and a huge degree of creative imagination, Parker crafted perfectly a unique melodic micro universe that complimented exquisitely the sense of mystery and wonder of nature the entire score of which has just been released by Silva Screen on a limited pressing of arctic pearl coloured vinyl.
