Deliaphonic is an annual celebration of the life and work of Delia Derbyshire on the anniversary of her birth, which takes place in her home town of Coventry. 

 

On the 5th May 2017, what would have been the 80th anniversary of Delia Derbyshire’s birth day, The Tin Music and Arts and Synthcurious held their first event at Coventry New Cathedral.

 

We marked the life and legacy of this most remarkable woman with an event involving artists she worked with and collaborated with, as well as leading electronic artists of today who are directly influenced by her work. 

 

The New Cathedral, built in the Modernist style alongside it’s war-torn predecessor, is both a symbol of peace and reconciliation, and was the perfect setting for the culmination of our celebration of such an inspirational person.

 

In 2018, the 2nd Deliaphonic took place in St John the Baptist Church.
