Show Map

Belgrave Music Hall and Canteen

1A Cross Belgrave Street, Leeds, LS2 8JP

Live performances and DJ sets celebrating the pioneering women of electronic music by composers including Delia Derbyshire and Daphne Oram.

Throughout the 1960s and 70s a group of pioneering women 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 and Daphne Oram.

Award-winning musician, Jo Thomas, will interpret more familiar works alongside previously unheard music, sharing a unique perspective on the composers featured following her archival research at the BBC Archives and University of Manchester.

Synth Remix will culminate in a headline set by Olivia Louvel who will perform her audio-visual work, Data Regina.

With DJ sets throughout, and a bar until late, Synth Remix will celebrate the legacy of of these pioneering women, presenting music by female artists working in the 1970s and 80s (Suzanne Ciani, Doris Norton and others), through to today (Holly Herndon, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, Mica Levi and more).
