at TACO!

As part of Frances Scott's ongoing research residency with TACO!, Frances is collaborating with musician and researcher Tom Richards to produce elements of the soundtrack for her new film, Wendy. Their collaboration will result in a live performance of the score.

During his PhD in 2016, Tom built a music synthesiser and sequencer designed—but never realised—in 1976 by Daphne Oram (1925–2003). Oram was one of the pioneers of electronic music in Britain and one of the founding members of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop.

When performed live, the Mini Oramics machine uses graphic scores, producing a drawn-sound. This ‘drawn sound synthesis’ will be used as a method to translate Wendy Carlos full, original composition 'Timesteps' (1971), of which only a section was used in Stanley Kubrick's film adaptation A Clockwork Orange.

This event is free to attend.
