Daphne Oram – An Individual Note Launch Event
Daphne Oram (1925-2003) was a British pioneer of electronic music and sound. She was the first Director of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, which she co-founded in 1958, and went on to compose and create soundtracks to many television and radio programmes, films and adverts as well as concert and performance pieces.
In 1972 Oram wrote An Individual Note of Music, Sound and Electronics – an engaging personal account of the possibilities of sound at the dawn of electronic music. This new edition, co-published by the Daphne Oram Trust and Anomie Publishing, brings Oram’s singular vision back into print, with an updated design and a new introduction by composer, roboticist and sound historian Sarah Angliss. Presented by the Daphne Oram Trust and the Daphne Oram Archive at Goldsmiths, University of London, Trust members and Oram experts will take part in a panel discussion hosted by electronic music researcher Frances Morgan. The evening promises to be an enjoyable celebration of one of Britain’s most influential and inventive composers.
The launch event starts at 19:00. Tickets are £5 (redeemable against purchase of the books on the night) and are available in-store, by telephone 0207 851 2400 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
