BEATLE Paul McCartney has prepared a tape of electronic noises – known as music in some circles – for use at a “carnival of light” at Centre 42’s Round House next month.
Carnival of light? This is a new art form combining sound with light coming mostly from 15 automatic projectors playing onto 60ft-high screens, which changes colour according to the sound.
There will be another five projectors developed from a Russian invention, which create patterns, blending and blurring vividly coloured shapes. They will be hand-operated by artists and designers David Vaughan, Douglas Binder and Dudley Edwards, the three men behind this form of entertainment.
The occasion threatens to be one of those eye-dazzling ear-splitting affairs that the trendy have already dubbed “psychedelic son et lumiere.”Unknown source – From WikiDelia: Delia Derbyshire’s papers include a clipping from an unknown newspaper of an article entitles Trendy Beatle about Paul McCartney’s tape experiments for the Million Volt Light and Sound Rave.

"With greatly expanded text, this is the most revealing and frank personal 30-year chronicle of the group ever written. Insider Barry Miles covers the Beatles story from childhood to the break-up of the group."
We owe a lot to Barry Miles for the creation of those pages, but you really have to buy this book to get all the details - a day to day chronology of what happened to the four Beatles during the Beatles years!
