Yes, I am obsessed with the post-war social and technological history of Britain, from 1948 to 1984.

The transition from steam, to diesel, to electro-mechanical, to solid state is something I have almost limitless fascination for and this influences a lot of my work.

'Harwell Dekatron' was an attempt to build a piece of contemporary electronic music using obsolete tools - samplers, tape recorders, hardware sequencers, analogue synthesisers, electro-mechanical signal processors, etc, and was inspired by the early electro-mechanical computers of the 1950s and 1960s.
