Daphne Oram and Adwick High School
- Event Type:
- 30 mins
Between 1966 and 1968 Daphne Oram was involved in creating the music syllabus for Adwick High School. Together with the school’s Head of Music, Oram devised classes in which students produced electronic music and musique concrete - a form of electroacoustic music. She also supplied the school with musical equipment.
This talk will trace the history of the Adwick Project and place it in the context of similar experiments of the time that also sought to bring the techniques and theories of the musical avant-garde into the school classroom.
