The third annual Oram Awards will take place on Saturday 15 June at King’s Place, London.
The event, named after founding member of the original Radiophonic Workshop Daphne Oram, is supported by the PRS foundation and The New BBC Radiophonic Workshop (headed up by electronic producer Matthew Herbert). It celebrates innovation in music, sound and other related technologies by “the next generation of forward thinking women”.
The 2019 awards sees an expanded programme that includes daytime events, talks and workshops hosted by BBC Research & Development and previous Oram Award winners. There’ll also be an evening event, headlined by former Oram Award winners Klein and Loraine James, with a DJ set from Beatrice Dillon.
The six winners of this year’s awards will receive development bursaries from PRS Foundation.
“It’s great to be in our third year, and I’m particularly pleased this year that we have expanded the awards event itself to include workshops and exhibitions from BBC R&D, Goldsmiths, and previous winners,” explains Herbert. “After being in Margate and Cheshire for the last two editions, I’m looking forward to a London ceremony and hearing music from this years nominees.”
