Delia Derbyshire

Delia Derbyshire worked at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop in the 1960s and early 70s. She is known for performing the original Doctor Who theme, collaborating on White Noise’s An Electric Storm album (a cult classic), “Dreams” (a collage of recordings describing dreams accompanied by electronic synth textures), and her many other experimental electronic compositions.

Delia’s works from the 60s and 70s continue to be used on radio and TV some 30 years later. A recent Guardian article called her ‘the unsung heroine of British electronic music’. She collaborated with such greats as Karlheinz Stockhausen, George Martin, Paul McCartney, Pink Floyd, Brian Jones, Ringo Starr and Harry Nilsson.
