::: CURRENT PROJECTS AND UPCOMING LIVE DATES :::
Lucky me, with plenty of nourishing and tasty creative activities on the go alongside studio engineering and music facilitator projects..
Northern Spirit has created a brand new theatre show currently touring in MAY/JUNE 2013: A Wondrous Place for which I worked on sound design and soundtrack with a spirited team and wonderful guest musicians indeed.
The show will be visiting Liverpool, Manchester, Sheffield and Newcastle upon Tyne, with four new drama stories celebrating what it is to be in and/or from ‘The North’.

DELIA DERBYSHIRE DAY 2013
Delia Derbyshire Day project with Ailís Ní Ríain & Naomi Kashiwagi. For much more info, reviews, and upcoming events please proceed to Delia Derbyshire Day project blog.
We were awarded funding from the Arts Council England, PRS for Music Foundation and Quebec Arts Council to put on our first Delia Derbyshire Day in Manchester at Band on the Wall on 12 Jan 2013. The event sold out and received some encouraging reviews. There has been calls for more Delia Derbyshire Day events so hopefully this will develop further.
We then carried out a small Delia Darlings Northern England tour in Liverpool (FACT), Sheffield (Queen’s Social Club supporting the wonderful Eccentronic Research Council) and Newcastle (Star and Shadow Cinema).
The project also led to me being invited by CBBC to help Dick and Dom create a version of Delia’s original Dr Who theme with a twist – using acessible modern technology and found sounds – aired on 20 Feb 2013. As part of the new series Absolute Genius with Dick and Dom which included a programme on the late great Delia Derbyshire.
Live footage can be found on the audio/visual page.
