This is an 18+ event

Throughout the 1960s and 70s a group of pioneering female musicians working at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, Bell Labs and elsewhere, developed and composed for innovative early synthesisers. Synth Remix will use live performance to explore the living potential of this radical music, presenting music by composers including Delia Derbyshire, Daphne Oram and Laurie Spiegel.

Award-winning electronic musician Jo Thomas interprets sounds by these pioneering women of electronic music, including performances of previously unheard compositions. With DJ sets presenting music by female artists working in the 1970s and 80s, through to today, the night culminates in a headline audio-visual set by contemporary artist Olivia Louvel, performing “at the creative frontiers where music and art intersect” (The Wire).
