BBC Proms 2018 Pioneers of Sound – 16 May 2021 – 16/5/2021 – Sunday – BBC Four

Groundbreaking British composer Anna Meredith presents this special Proms tribute to the godmothers of electronica, the pioneers of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. The celebration kicks off with music by Delia Derbyshire – most famously remembered for bringing the world the Doctor Who theme in its full electronic glory – and finishes with the premiere of Daphne Oram’s revolutionary Still Point, lovingly pieced together from recently discovered archive material and performed by Shiva Feshareki on turntables. Music by artists including Laurie Spiegel, CHAINES and Suzanne Ciani, performed by the London Contemporary Orchestra under conductor Robert Ames, emphasises the power of this legacy.
