Our little tour with Noel Meek and Richard Youngs went really well, thanks! Here’s a few pics I lifted off Twitter.. might be some recordings floating about that may wash up at some point too.
Tor Fest: Experimental Yorkshire was a total success as well by the way! Cheers to everyone who came and especially to Mal at the Trades who couldn’t have been more helpful. We’ll be back there again some time I’m sure.
Here’s a really great video that perfectly captures all the different actions that took place in 2018’s rendition of ‘Landscape’ which is a score by Mick Banks and Trevor Wishart originally composed for the Hebden Bridge Arts Festival in 1970. This video was made by Luke Blazejewski.
Thanks to Julian Brooks for producing this year’s version and to Eleanor Cully for coaching high notes out of me!

The Harrowing of the North, Experimental Music from Yorkshire:
Part of the reason we are organising this all dayer at the Hebden Bridge Trades is to launch this great new compilation put together by Neil Campbell of the Vibracathedral Orchestra Experience. Noel Meek is bringing copies over from New Zealand and they will be available at the festival before they are available anywhere. (ps I have a track on there)
