Daphne Oram's visionary Still Point fills the cavernous space of the Royal Albert Hall for the first time in the premiere of a revised realisation based on recently discovered archive material.

Composed in 1949 - almost a decade before Oram co-founded the BBC Radiophonic Workshop - the piece was possibly the first to combine a live orchestra with live electronic manipulations, here played via turntables.

Still Point forms the centrepiece of a late-night sonic exploration that features work by Delia Derbyshire - another Radiophonic Workshop pioneer who achieved cult status for her electronic arrangement of the Doctor Who TV theme - as well as new works inspired by the Radiophonic legacy.
