Science All Around title

Delia created music for a programme "Sound" in the BBC Schools TV series Science All Around, commissioned by producer Robin Gwyn for BBC1.

The piece's creation starts with a phone call from Robin Gwyn to the workshop, which is taken down in pencilled notes for Desmond Briscoe, who then forwards the work to Delia, who realises something inspired by the resonance patterns that form on Chladni plates in response to different sounds.

The tape's catalogue entry is dated June 1971 but the tape is not to be found.[1]
