It’s been a busy and thoroughly fun summer working with some amazing community groups and wonderful residents of Stockport.

Commissioned by passionate creative producers Let’s Go, myself and the awesome Louise Wallwein (poet, writer, playwright) have been working as resident artists for the project which culminates in a community takeover event at the newly restored Bramall Hall in Stockport on Sunday SEPT 11 2016.

We’ve been writing multi-lingual songs, soundscapes with spoken word, composing a mass poem and inter-generational electronic music beats and raps about the mysterious tudor hall with the missing ‘H’. Participants have shared memories and indulged their imaginations as we give the Hall a voice for the day in a promenade performance experience on Sept 11.

This one-off day of performance experience in such an atmospheric setting is free but tickets are limited. Apparently tickets are going fast so do make your way to the Off the Wall at Bramall Hall eventbrite page if you are interested.

Feels particularly fitting at the moment..

Crazy Wonderful from caro c on Vimeo.

Video by the wonderful digital artist/creative technologist Andrea Pazos with an excerpt from “Persona” by Ingmar Bergman.

The story behind this one is that after living nearly 20 years in pretty full on physical pain, I was given the gift of an operation which has lifted that. So grateful am I. After being a rather verbose and florid lyric writer, I was surprised that the only lyrics that really came through for the first couple of years were “It’s a crazy wonderful”, both personally and globally.

Listen to, buy and share my third electronic music album at Caro C Bandcamp.
