A Concert of Electronic Music playbill

On 15th January 1968 Delia participated in a concert of electronic music at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London.

The concert opened with her piece Pot Pourri and there is film of her on stage starting the machinery that plays Peter Zinovieff's ‘Partita for Unattended Computer’.[1]

The following day, "Jack" (Albert Chatterly) writes to her[2] saying:

Congratulations on your (far too) tiny bit at
the Q.E. Hall last night. I agreed with the "Times"
that you certainly produced gorgeous sounds.
