Feminatronic reblogged this on Feminatronic and commented:

So, I began with thoughts of focussing on Experimental Electronic Music and like most went down the route of the standard history that everyone charts. As some of you by now will realise, although I do post a lot about the well known electronic artists, genres and histories, I also try to give those well under the radar a space to get their music heard or the genre a wider audience. This includes trying to bring to attention the scene in the rest of the world. I had heard about Hugh Davies and his catalogue of 'alternative electronic history' but until today had not had a chance to explore further. So glad I did ! As I knew in my heart, there was and still is an alternative electronic music scene and one where many artists are quietly creating music unknown or ignored. This is why I am reblogging this article as part of the Experimental Season, as many of the themes are still so relevant today and why Hugh Davies' work is still vital as a challenge to the traditional historical theory. Listening to the Soundcloud discussion is recommended as it gives an insight into roles of Daphne Oram ad Delia Derbyshire in the development of British electronic music and technology. Some interesting questions and answers. Here is the original overview of the concert and presentation on Daphne Oram and Delia Derbyshire - https://hughdaviesproject.wordpress.com/2015/02/19/daphne-oram-and-delia-derbyshire-electric-spring-festival-18-feb-2015/
