Tribute to Coventry Doctor Who pioneer Delia Derbyshire ‘fit’

Ms Derbyshire has often been cited as a major influence on electronic music and Shaun Hides, dean of the College of Arts and Society, said he was “super proud” of the building which he hoped would inspire students and add to her legacy.

He said the equipment was excellent and included 360 motion capture and 360 sound equipment, as well as a film and photography studio.

“We have an amazing building with amazing facilities for our students,” he said.

“(Naming the building after Derbyshire) is absolutely fitting.

“Delia was a pioneer in her field. She used innovation and creative technologies creatively to push the boundaries of what music could be, which is exactly what we want our students to do.”
