I hope you are all well. It’s been a long and eventful year for me, and doubtless for you too! You may remember I’ve been locked away in a small room with a computer for a while now in order to create an audiovisual installation and short story called Innervate about music triggered epilepsy. An incredible experience but quite possibly the hardest thing I’ve ever done!
The good news is that after many hours and weeks and months of programming and procrastinating we have not only finished the installation, we are finally playing our first gig!
Adam and I will be playing some of the music from the installation live at Guy’s Hospital Atrium 1 next Wednesday the 18th September at 1pm as part of their fantastic arts programme, Breathe. It’s a special place for me for a lot of reasons and has a beautiful acoustic. I really hope that some of you can join us to hear it. It’s also completely free entry.
I’ll be playing my robo recorder which is specially modified with a circuit board and MIDI inputs, and using it to trigger an array of synths on my computer. Everything will be improvised live with no sequencers! Adam will be playing cajon and percussion. So a little different to my usual sound. I hope you like it! Details of the show are here.
If you’d like to be able to see (and read!) my project early I’d love you to take part in the feedback group- particularly if you have any experience of chronic illness or disability. Please email me and I will send you all the details.
Thanks so much for your support. The cats send purrs ( it is their birthday so they are being spoilt!)
