In 1968 with Kaleidophon,[1] Delia made music for M. Leonard's exhibit The Coloured Wall at the Association of Electrical Engineers Exhibition[2], opening on the 26th March 1968.[3]

Delia's last sheet of notes outlines her plan for the composition of the soundtrack:[4]


"The electronic sound-track used for the exhibit 'The Coloured Wall' by Mr. M. Leonard remains entirely the property of Kaleidophon".[3]
