DELIA DERBYSHIRE: THE MYTHS AND LEGENDARY TAPES d. Caroline Catz, 2020 + Q&A with the director at The Castle Cinema (10 JUL 16:00) / Part of Doc’n Roll Festival.
- “A true pioneer in audio exploration and psycho-acoustics, Delia Derbyshire conceived one of the most familiar compositions in science fiction – the Doctor Who theme – while working in a BBC basement. Her soundscapes felt like they connected to another realm. This film tunes into Derbyshire’s frequency – kicking off with the discovery of 267 tapes in an attic, along with a treasure trove of journals hidden in her childhood bedroom – and tells captures the infectious energy of a life-long non-conformist, whose peals of laughter in an archive interview tickle with delight and eccentricity.”
