All You Need Is Lab: How Science and Technology Inspired Innovation in Music

Midge Ure outlines the way technical innovations have been embraced by pop stars over the years, from the invention of the steel guitar string through to the creation of pitch-correction programmes, which help disguise when a singer hits a note off-key. He reveals how many artists have adapted or distorted these technological developments to produce new sounds, and is joined in discussion by musicians Anne Dudley and Thomas Dolby, music journalist David Hepworth and blues researcher Tom Attah. Includes songs by the Beatles, Muddy Waters, Les Paul, Queen, Stevie Wonder, Fatboy Slim and Daft Punk.
