Deliaphonic Revisted

Very excited to announce that the Deliaphonic website is now online. You may remember that Howlround played at the inaugural Deliaphonic event in Coventry Cathedral back in 2017, in celebration of what would have been legendary composer Delia Derbyshire’s 80th birthday. Joining us on the bill that night were Delia’s former colleague Dr. Peter Zinovieff, Pete ‘Sonic Boom’ Kember, Hannah Peel, Mr. Jerry Dammers and of course Resonance FM’s own Jonny Trunk, who provided a rare screening of the Delia-soundtracked film Circle Of Light. A truly memorable evening, now documented in the excellent accompanying film These Machines Haven’t Finished, made by Anti/Type Films, and featuring cameos from all of the personnel involved in the 2017 event, as well as contributions from renown Delia experts Dr. David Butler and Delia Derbyshire Day lynchpin Caro C. Take an hour off now and watch it – it’s superb!

An outstanding work from our hosts The Tin Music and Arts in collaboration with Synthcurious. The composer’s legacy is clearly in safe hands! Howlround’s Coventry Cathedral performance can also be experienced in full below. Hard to believe this was just a year ago,  the sound has changed a lot since then!
