‘Dance from Noah’ by Delia Derbyshire was made in 1971 and when it was broadcast on ‘Sculptress of Sound: The Lost Works of Delia Derbyshire‘, some  people couldn’t actually believe that this could have been produced in 1971, pre-techno!

David Butler‘s (Delia Derbyshire Archivist) response is fascinating and insightful. Click here for the full article. I agree with David: Delia Derbyshire was really that awesome.

Here’s the track:
