Daphne Oram’s Wonderful World of Sound
Fri 2 June at 7.30pm 

Live-scored by electronic sound artist Anneke Kampman, Daphne Oram’s Wonderful World of Sound is a visually arresting journey through the amazing life of one of the great, unsung composers of the twentieth century. 

In 1942, a séance inspires seventeen-year-old Daphne Oram to found the world-famous BBC adiophonic Workshop and in the process reshape the entire development of electronic music. 

One of the most distinctive composers of the 20th century, Daphne Oram was a pioneer of sound who cut a trailblazing path through uncharted musical territory. This is her story and the story of those following in her wake. 

Award-winning Glasgow-based ensemble Blood of the Young team up with SAY-nominated sound artist Anneke Kampman to explore the life and ideas of a true innovator who sacrificed everything for her art. 

“Electrifying...it carries a real shiver of innovation.”
