Compilation of footage from Akemi Festival @ Contact Theatre in October where Bekke and I showed our piece ONE. Some snatches of the performance in this but most of the sound is from the music I wrote for the piece. Hopefully there’ll be more developments of this piece in the new year.
Shot of Bekke Platt from our collaborative piece ONE. This shot is from the Greenroom performance for the Emergency Festival on the 2nd October, more pictures here. Should be some film and more pictures coming through from this and the contact performance at some point…
Then on Sunday 2nd May we play at The Kings Arms near Salford Central station (please note this is a change of venue from The Salvation Army) of as part of Sounds From The Other City. This is organised by Wotgodforgot & Mind On Fire, we should be onstage around 4.40pm.
There’s a nice little mix here of various people playing at SFTOC.
These might be the last Manchester/Salford gigs for a little while.
Above you can see the hermetic graphic score I drew for the Ad Hoc dance performance I wrote music for earlier in the Autumn. The score was performed by me with the Ad Hoc dancers at the Lowry Studio Theatre in Salford on the 11th of November. Some of the music I wrote for this performance has since been recorded for solo guitar and will hopefully see the light of day sometime next year on a longer release.
Below are the open scores, hopefully understandable to anyone with a familarity with a guitar in open tuning, some extended techniques and graphic scores. These are the tidied up versions of the documents I worked on with choreographer Ruth Tyson-Jones and the dancers to create the finished score.
