Maddalena Fagandini worked in the BBC Radiophonic Workshop from 1959 to 1966.[1]


“When Delia arrived [in April 1962], a lot more possibilities were presented. She knew maths and was very organised from that point of view. She began to use the oscillators in a more structured sense, because she could. She knew the harmonic structure of certain sounds, she could put them together. I got into TV producing because I thought that the way things were going (in the Radiophonic Workshop), it did require far greater musical training. However wonderful the sounds were, it needed something extra. They really started making excellent music”[2]
