Radionics Radio - An Album of Musical Radionic Thought Frequencies - Delawarr Multi-Oscillator (c.1962)

Published on Aug 1, 2016 ashford daisyak

This one in via Daniel Wilson: the album "draws attention to one of the strangest sound-making devices ever made - the under-researched Delawarr Multi-Oscillator (c.1962), which was designed to convert thoughts into clusters of frequencies. My research into this oddity has culminated in this release."

Video Description:
"Advert for the new release: Radionics Radio - 'An Album of Musical Radionic Thought Frequencies' on Sub Rosa (due August 5th 2016).

Radionics Radio is an electroacoustic and musical exposition of alternative tuning systems derived from frequencies submitted via the Radionics Radio app. All the sounds strictly originate from respective thought-frequency submissions and octaves thereof.

Further background info on this research-based project can be viewed here: [embedded below]

From press release:
'Daniel Wilson's Radionics Radio draws upon the fringe-science of radionics, with its invisible forces and psychic resonances, to spawn electroacoustic and electronic compositions employing very alternative tuning systems. Radionics' idea that thoughts can be represented as frequencies is vigorously explored on this new release through microtonal compositions which range from mutating drones to electronic sambas, with nods to Raymond Scott and Daphne Oram along the way.'

Radionics Radio was made possible through Sound and Music's Embedded programme and Resonance 104.4FM.

"Radionics Radio is a project by Resonance FM's Sound and Music Embedded Composer in Residence Daniel Wilson. It draws on the radionic idea that thoughts can be intuitively linked to clusters of frequencies. From this, it is possible to explore unusual alternative tuning systems supposedly embodying certain thoughts. The Radionics Radio EP will be released by Sub Rosa in the summer of 2016."
