Daphne Oram’s Wonderful World of Sound

One of the most distinctive composers of her generation, Daphne Oram cut a trailblazing path through uncharted musical territory. In 1942 a seventeen-year-old Daphne attended a séance which inspired her to forge a career in music. This led to her co-founding and becoming the first director of the world-famous BBC Radiophonic Workshop, (birth-place of many of television’s early Sci-Fi themes, such as Doctor Who).

In a career spanning more than 30 years, she worked with opera singers, classical composers and rock and roll stars. She released several records, influenced the teaching of music in schools, wrote a book on her personal sound philosophy (An Individual Note) and continued always to pursue innovation, learning and teaching her craft – often as the only woman in that professional environment.

Don’t miss David James Kirkwood as he tours with this new and exciting production. Tickets can be found for the initial shows at the Tron here. The show then travels to The Lemon Tree, Eden Court, the Traverse, Eastgate Theatre, MacArts and Dundee Rep.
