Delia Derbyshire Day

Delia Derbyshire Day 2014 is a touring event honouring the work and archive of electronic music pioneer Delia Derbyshire (1937-2001). Delia is most famous for realising the iconic original Dr Who Theme in 1963 and her extensive archive contains much fascinating music for TV, radio and theatre. Tonight, the Delia Darlings will present an evening of film and live music inspired by the DD archive.

Cork born composer Ailis Ni Riain will present ‘Consequences of Falling’, a contemporary classical/free jazz piece featuring double bass and trumpet. Caro C will perform ‘Audient, My Dear’, an experimental/electronic piece utilising software, hardware and a ping pong ball (link to studio version here https://vimeo.com/63914942), and Daniel Weaver will be working electroacoustic magic with home made instruments from found and recycled materials. Performances will be accompanied with visuals by Andrea Pazos.

Live music will be proceeded by a screening of Kara Blake’s award-winning documentary "The Delian Mode", and followed by an audio-visual collage of material from Delia’s archive at Manchester University. Plus we’ll have a Delia inspired DJ set in the bar.
