As part of this year’s Full of Noises programme, Octopus are excited to be hosting two special events celebrating the life and work of 1960’s electronic music pioneer Delia Derbyshire (1937-2001), most well-known for her work at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop where she produced the version of The Dr Who theme loved by generations of fans.
Workshop (ages 8+)
Free (booking required)
Make your own music inspired by Delia Derbyshire. This hands-on workshop is led by sound engineer/
music producer Caro C and composer/producer Mandy Wigby. After deconstructing Delia’s iconic
rendering of the original Dr Who theme tune and looking at some working notes from Delia’s archive,
you will have the opportunity to explore and play with found sounds, sampling and creating loops.
No experience necessary – just bring your ears and your imagination!
