::: CURRENT PROJECTS AND UPCOMING LIVE DATES :::
Amidst ample studio engineering/production, music technology education work and other creative facilitator roles, I am currently developing a new live show which had its first public sharing on 30 MAY in SALFORD, UK.
Produced in collaboration with digital visual artist Andrea Pazos and with research and development support from Arts Council England, we are now looking at recording the tracks and then getting out there and gigging them. Might even embark on a crowdfunding pre-order kind of thing..action feels imminent
DELIA DERBYSHIRE DAY
The next performance of my Delia Derbyshire Day commission Audient, My Dear for software, hardware, voice, ruler and ping pong ball will be at Whitworth Art Gallery on Sat 12 September. More info to follow.
After the shimmering success of Delia Derbyshire Day 2013, we now have done our second DD Day 2014 followed by a few more tour dates including the South of England. It was a splendid experience spreading the word about the late great Delia D and sharing my commission Audient, My Dear for software, hardware, voice, ruler and ping pong ball with live visual accompaniment by Andrea Pazos for 2014. We went to Trades Club, Hebden Bridge; Norwich Arts Centre; Horse Hospital, London; North Wall Arts Centre, Oxford for OCM; And a special appearance at Ada Lovelace Day 2014, a science cabaret celebrating Women in STEM at the Royal Institution of Great Britain.
I have been performing a further developed version of my DD Day 2013 commission ‘Audient, my dear’ for hardware, software, voice, ping pong ball & ruler with live visual accompaniment from the clever young Andrea Pazos which seems to have gone down very well. Thank you to all who bothered to tell me they enjoyed it
