Coming soon – the warm embrace of the Delia Darlings

In April I will join the Delia Darlings for a short tour to perform a specially commisioned new piece of music inspired by electronic music pioneer Delia Derbyshire.

For this I have been trawling her archives and talking with esteemed Delianist David Butler (among others). The first proposal is looking like a mechanical instrument inspired by Delia’s use of tape and colage. It will feature found objects as sound sources and attempt to create an atmospheric, theatrical and humorous work. I’ve really enjoyed the research and learning more about her worlds of TV and Theatre.  Anyone who grew up with the BBC in the 60′s and 70′s has Delia in their psyche and it’s a pleasure to be guided back there with experts.
