::: CURRENT PROJECTS AND UPCOMING LIVE DATES :::
Lucky me, with plenty of nourishing and tasty creative activities on the go alongside studio engineering and music facilitator projects including..
SEED STUDIOS RADIO PROGRAMME COMMISSION
I have been commissioned to produce a radio creative documentary for Seed Studios in Trafford, Manchester. The aim of these radio programmes (5 or 6 in all) is to raise awareness of hate crimes, discrimination and stigma by interviewing people who have experienced hate crimes. To be distributed to local radio stations and online.

DELIA DARLINGS TOURING DATES 2013/14
Delia darlings is now myself and Ailís Ní Ríain – we are composers and producers committed to celebrating and honouring the work and cultural legacy of the late great Delia Derbyshire via her archive here in Manchester, UK.
Delia Derbyshire Day 2013 was conceived and delivered with Ailís Ní Ríain & Naomi Kashiwagi.
For much more info, reviews, and upcoming events please proceed to Delia Derbyshire Day project blog.
We were awarded funding from the Arts Council England, PRS for Music Foundation and Quebec Arts Council to put on our first Delia Derbyshire Day in Manchester at Band on the Wall on 12 Jan 2013. The event sold out and received some encouraging reviews. There has been calls for more Delia Derbyshire Day events so hopefully this will develop further.
We then carried out a small Delia Darlings Northern England tour in Liverpool (FACT), Sheffield (Queen’s Social Club supporting the wonderful Eccentronic Research Council) and Newcastle (Star and Shadow Cinema).
The project also led to me being invited by CBBC to help Dick and Dom create a version of Delia’s original Dr Who theme with a twist – using acessible modern technology and found sounds – aired on 20 Feb 2013. As part of the new series Absolute Genius with Dick and Dom which included a programme on the late great Delia Derbyshire.
