In 1942, seventeen-year-old Daphne Oram founded the world-famous BBC
Radiophonic Workshop and reshaped the entire development of electronic
music. This play is a visually arresting journey through Daphne’s life
performed and live-scored by electronic sound artist Anneke Kampman.
Daphne Oram was a pioneer of sound who cut a trailblazing path through
uncharted musical territory. Her story is told by award-winning ensemble
Blood of the Young who have teamed up with SAY-nominated sound artist
Anneke to explore the life and ideas of a true innovator who sacrificed
everything for her art.
