WHITE NOISE is an experimental electronic music band formed in London, England, in 1968 by American-born David Vorhaus, a classical bass player with a background in physics and electronic engineering. He was initially joined by BBC Radiophonic Workshop composers Delia Derbyshire and Brian Hodgson, who had formerly both been members of electronic music project "Unit Delta Plus". In June 1969 White Noise released the groundbreaking album "An electric storm" on Island Records. The album was created using a variety of tape manipulation techniques, and used the first British synthesizer, the EMS Synthi VCS3. Amongst many oddities, the first track on the album, "Love Without Sound", employed sped-up tape edits of Vorhaus playing the double bass to create violin and cello sounds.
