The Langham Research Centre is a British musique concrete group, who create new music by combining obsolete electronic equipment – analogue tape machines and sinewave oscillators – with cutting edge digital tools.

They formed in 2003 to keep alive the processes and spirit of composing for tape. They have become known for their authentic performances of works by John Cage, and in 2012 gave the UK premieres of his early electronic works Speech, and WBAI.

They have performed at leading arts spaces Tate Modern, Tate Britain, and Frieze Art Fair, and the London Coliseum. They have made a number of radiophonic works for BBC Radio, and recently premiered a symphony-length work for soprano and tape machines, OBAMIX.
