David Butler

Dr David Butler is a Lecturer in Screen Studies at the University of Manchester.

In March 2008[1] Mark Ayres gave him on permanent loan, Delia's tapes and papers that were found in her attic after she died; he is their current custodian.

He has organised the digitization of the tapes, put on an installation in an art festival using some of Delia's music as the soundscape[2] and occasionally appears in BBC items and in forums.

You can listen to the digitized versions of Delia's tapes or view the papers by paying him a visit in Manchester in the U.K. and he can be contacted by email as david.g.butler@manchester.ac.uk[3]
