Commissioned as part of a Season of Sound, celebrating the British Library’s sound archive.
The original Radiophonic Workshop kindly allowed Illustrious access to previously-unheard snippets of original compositional ideas from the works of Delia Derbyshire. The result is a world-premiere ‘fever dream’ of sonic creativity – Delia’s astounding talent is overwhelmingly beautiful and embodies the very essence of sonic futurism.
The event was the third in a series of three presentations hosted by Martyn Ware – alongside Tales From the Bridge and Liquid Histories.
