composing with tape recorders
Had I worked at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, I would have got my tie chewed and recorded over up by 10AM every day. Probably intentionally after the first time.
And hands up if you estimated their delay time by dividing the loop’s approximate length (doubled) by 15IPS.

Roger Roger & Nino Nardini: ‘Informatic 2000’ (1982)
“Born at Rouen, Normandy, Roger started composing for films in the 1930s, and was responsible for the famous pantomime sequences in Marcel Carné’s Les Enfants du Paradis (1944). He also performed and composed music for several European radio stations, including Radio Luxembourg, Radio 37 and Europe 1.
After the Second World War, Roger became a composer of library music, i.e. music designed to evoke a particular mood in a film or television production. Much of his output became available via Chappell Music, and Roger also went into partnership with Frank Chacksfield to work on several projects for the BBC.
Cecil Leuter is the pseudonym he used for his electronic productions. One of the first with Pierre Henry and Jean-Jacques Perrey to try out the Moog synth. Originally his Pop Electronique album was released in 1969.Five years after Bob Moog put his synth on the market.
He died in Paris in 1995. Since his death, renewed interest in light music has seen several CD albums released, both in dedicated albums and in compilations, notably of test card music, where some of Roger’s music was used by the BBC in the 1970s.
He is listed as the composer for two episodes of the 1954 Flash Gordon series
Nino Nardini was the pseudonym for Georges Achille Teperino (1912 - 1994), a French musician and pioneer in electronic music. He produces many recordings. Most of them are instrumental/library recordings for TV and Radio-stations.”
