Celebrating the God Mother of Electronic Music: Delia Derbyshire

by atomeyeblog


A long-awaited recognition to a bright spark who was once told: “The recording studio is no place for a woman”.

Delia Derbyshire Day is being held in Manchester Saturday 12th Jan.
The godmother of British electronic music who helped to create one of the most recognisable TV theme tunes of all time and pioneered the genre through her work in the BBC Radiophonic Workshop is to be commemorated in an inaugural one-day celebration of her work in Manchester.

Delia Derbyshire Day, which will take place at Band on the Wall in Manchester’s Northern Quarter this Saturday 12 January, is the first substantial public exploration of her achievements as composer and musician. They include the realisation of Ron Grainer’s original Doctor Who theme tune.
