Kim Khaos and Tom Harlow present The Glitter & Grind Revue, a show harking back to the golden age of cabaret with top notch UK and international stars.
Live-scored by electronic sound artist Anneke Kampman, Daphne Oram’s Wonderful World of Sound is a journey through the amazing life of one of the great, unsung composers of the twentieth century.
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.
