Writer Frances Morgan talks with artists Tom Richards, James Bulley and Sarah Angliss about optical sound and its framing in history, considering the work of Daphne Oram and Giorgio Griffa alongside their modernist peers including Wassily Kandinsky, Edgard Varèse and the Bauahus movement.

Daphne Oram (1925-2003) was an electronic music pioneer, one of the founding members of the BBC Radiophonic workshop and the creator of Oramics — a drawn sound technique in which drawings made directly onto 35mm film stock are read by photo-electric cells and turned into sounds. Besides being a musical innovator, Oram was the first woman to direct an electronic music studio, the first woman to set up a personal electronic music studio and the first woman to design and construct an electronic musical instrument.
