DD Day 2016 is a special music and visual arts event celebrating the fascinating work and archive of Delia Derbyshire (1937-2001), a pioneer of electronic music, who is perhaps most famous for realising the iconic, original Dr Who theme in 1963.
Throughout her career, Delia had a close affinity with the visual arts, working on BBC projects about artists including Henry Moore, Francisco Goya and Eduardo Paolozzi, and collaborating with visual artists like Yoko Ono and Madelon Hooykaas.
DD Day 2016 showcases this interplay between music and the visual arts, and will include film screenings, live art and music performances, a Q&A, a hands on family workshop and a networking event exploring women’s performance practice.
