A 3-part video of the Waterghosts live performance at St Mary’s Church (Brighton Fringe Festival) can now be watched on Youtube.
It’s an astonishing document. Have a look, draw yr own conclusions…
It’s finally happening: at the Brighton Fringe in May at St Mary’s Church, and should be wonderfully mental.
Won’t say more at present – largely because I don’t know much more myself – but I’ll be performing a spoken word piece, and there’ll be music / sound, dancers, sculpture, and a certain amount of the kind of thing you see in the photo above. (That’s not me up there btw but Jamie Sturrock, whose brainchild all of this holy madness is.)
I’m on Radio Reverb this Sunday as part of an hour-long programme of spoken word and improvised music – that’s 28 July at 11pm, on 97.2FM. The programme’s repeated at the following times:
Tue 30 July 7am
Wed 31 July 11am, &
Fri 2 Aug 5am
It’s been a while, but then this time of year’s rarely very dramatic.
Lately, the focus is on improvising, found sounds and field recordings – for instance, a spoken word piece I just did with a sound artist named Jamie Sturrock.
He’d produced a very eerie soundscape called water ghosts, based on noises obtained by dangling a mic into an underground cavern in Scotland. I wrote a response after sitting in the dark with it, then recorded this with him. The results, when finished, may be released at some point – but that’s out of my hands, and part of a larger ongoing project. More news on this if/when I have it.
Anyway, it’s very exciting so far; Jamie’s website (with water ghosts toward the bottom of the page) can be found here.
