Film “Delia Derbyshire: The Myths and then Legendary Tapes” Premiering at London Film Festival

Via Sonic State, I discovered a new film about Delia Derbyshire will be premiering at the London Film Festival and will be streamable in the UK.

Here is the description on the film festival listing.

‘Radio was the most important thing in my life and music, music, music!’ A true pioneer in audio exploration and psycho-acoustics, Delia Derbyshire conceived one of the most familiar compositions in science fiction, the Doctor Who theme, while working in a BBC basement. Her soundscapes felt like they connected to another realm. Kicking off with the discovery of 267 tapes in an attic, along with a treasure trove of journals hidden in her childhood bedroom, this film tunes in to Derbyshire’s frequency; that of a life-long non-conformist, whose peals of laughter in an archive interview tickle with delight and eccentricity. Featuring a rich archive, interviews, fictional embodiment and Cosey Fanni Tutti’s psycho-sonic channelling, director Caroline Catz traces acoustic pathways on her archeological dig into Derbyshire’s resonant life.

I’m hoping that after the festival the film rentable worldwide.
