Mini Oramics at Fort Process Festival

The next chance to get your hands on and play with Mini Oramics will be at Fort Process audio festival on the 3rd september. I hope to see you there.

Feature in The Wire

Mini-Oramics and an interview with me feature in the September 2016 issue of The Wire

Mini Oramics on BBC Radio 4

Thanks to the Goldsmiths press team, a BBC feature producer, Chris Vallance, became interested in my research, and he made a small web feature and a short piece for the World at Onewhich featured myself, James Bulley and Dr Jo Thomas all talking about Daphne Oram, Oramics and Mini-Oramics. I was able to point Chris to an old BBC sound recording of Oram herself talking about Oramics on the World at One in 1972, which made a lovely link into the piece. The audio of Oram talking about her work on the BBC is available at the Daphne Oram Archive and is audio archive number DO236.

I think the radio link has expired but you can see the web feature here.
