Artist and musician Cosey Fanni Tutti is in conversation with actor and writer Maxine Peake. The pair present an exploration into Cosey Fanni Tutti's own creative life and the lives and recordings of musician and composer Delia Derbyshire and fifteenth-century mystic visionary Margery Kempe.
In 2018, Cosey Fanni Tutti received a commission to write the soundtrack to a film about Delia Derbyshire, the influential electronic composer who carried out ground-breaking work with the BBC Radiophonic Workshop during the 1960s. While researching Derbyshire’s life, Tutti became immersed in her story and uncovered parallels with her own life. Simultaneously, Tutti began reading about Margery Kempe, the fifteenth-century mystic visionary who wrote the first English-language autobiography.
Drawing on her new publication Re-Sisters (Faber, 2022), Tutti explores the creative influences and approaches that unite these three practitioners, discussing womanhood, the creative process and self-expression.
