There is a black hole in the internet and that is 'sound'

The BBC Radiophonic Workshop is being "reborn" through a partnership between the BBC and the Arts Council.

The New Radiophonic Workshop (NRW) will be led by Matthew Herbert, the electronic composer who has collaborated with Björk and been nominated for an Ivor Novello award for his soundtrack work. "What the [original] workshop achieved was the pinnacle of electronic music in this country, and it is all the more extraordinary given that it was conceived in the 50s," Herbert told The Independent yesterday.

Reminder: The Alchemists of Sound.

More importantly: The goddess Delia Derbyshire. Ziwzih! Ziwzih! OO-OO-OO!
