As part of Unit Delta Plus,[1] Delia created music for the Brighton Festival held on the West Pier on 14th-30th April 1967 to exhibit works of art by staff and students of the Hornsey College of Art.

Billed in the programme as "LIGHT/SOUND WORKSHOP", Delia created the soundscapes for two exhibits: "Kinetic Arena" and "Kinetic Labyrinth" alongside “performances by Bruce Lacey and his robots, and Pink Floyd Sound”.[2]

The musics for the event, or the event itself are also collectively know as K4 or Kinetic four dimensional.[3]
