DD DAY 2019 - 1a WORKSHOP for BEGINNERS for families - Create your own electric storm
"Create you your own electric storm"
Electronic music making workshop for families (max 2 child + 1 accompanying adult) - come and compose in surround sound!
DD Day 2019 presents "Electric Storm 50", an electronic music extravaganza honouring the 50th anniversary of the release of the seminal album "An Electric Storm" on Island Records by the White Noise trio (David Vorhaus, Delia Derbyshire and Brian Hodgson). Cited as the first electronic pop album in the UK, it was a cult album that has inspired many artists since.
Come and learn more about how this way ahead of its time album was produced and create your own electric storm using ipads, everyday objects and your voice. No experience necessary. Suitable for ages 7+ with an accompanying adult.
Delia Derbyshire's most famous work is her realisation of Ron Grainer's original Dr Who theme. Delia was also a key figure in the White Noise trio. Band member David Vorhaus describes Delia as his "teacher". The album is an excellent example of Delias meticulous tape manipulation skills and marvelous musicality. "An Electric Storm" was made with no synthesisers! We think electric storm is an evocative and accessible concept, sonically and visually so we hope you will have lots of fun creating your own "electric storm" inspired compositions.
