    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.

    In 1942, a séance inspires seventeen-year-old Daphne Oram to found the world-famous BBC Radiophonic Workshop and shape the entire development of electronic sound, cutting a trailblazing path through uncharted musical territory. This is her incredible story. / @BOTYtheatre / @trontheatre
