Well I’m about to hit the road on the first gig of a small tour! It’s the Hydrogen JUkebox in Darlington this evening. OK, so it’s not a hotel trashing rock and roll thing but I’m looking forward to it. The tour is a with poet Maureen Almond who will be reading selections from her latest publication “The Works”. Digital Artist, Maggie Parker provides the visuals and I have produced the soundscape. Maggie and I provide our a accompaniment from a small orchestra of laptops at the back of the venue.
During the production of the audio soundscape I sagged off for a while and produced a groove based on Winston Churchills “Finest Hour” speech. I’ll upload that here soon.
