Buri­als in Sev­eral earths RooM 13 8/10 The BBC’s sonic sci­en­tists re­unite for de­monic im­prov The cre­ations of the 59-year-old Radiophonic Work­shop are al­most im­pos­si­bly di­verse, rang­ing from elec­tronic musique con­crète to the Doc­tor Who theme and Goon Show sound-ef­fects. Buri­als In Sev­eral Earths, the first new al­bum from the col­lec­tive – in­clud­ing orig­i­nal mem­ber Dick Mills – in over 30 years, finds them aban­don­ing kitsch and play­ing spir­i­tual de­scen­dants Ghost Box at their own game. Con­sist­ing of five lengthy im­provs, and re­leased in a box of 10”s as well as on CD, this is night­mar­ish stuff – os­cil­lat­ing waves and synth drones hum men­ac­ingly, while snatches of pi­ano ap­pear, like daylight at the end of some an­cient, sub­ter­ranean tun­nel.
