2023 marks 60 years of BBC sci-fi series Doctor Who. Which also means 60 years of the show’s iconic theme tune produced by electronic music pioneer Delia Derbyshire, and composed by Ron Grainer.
Working with Delia Derbyshire Day (DD Day), we will match one music/sound artist based in with one visual artist in the early stages of their careers.
You’ll work together to create a new audiovisual work (approximately 5 minutes) inspired by Delia Derbyshire, Doctor Who and the wider Delia Derbyshire Archive, a treasure trove of electronic music heritage.
You don’t even have to like Doctor Who, we’re welcome to critical reflections and different perspectives!
You’ll each get a commission fee of £1500 to cover your artist time, expenses and production costs. You’ll also be supported by a mentor who you’ll meet three times throughout the process.
