I’ve just finished devising a ten-minute version of An Audio Guide to Varo’s Harmony, which I will perform at the Mad Artists’ Tea Party at the Junction, Cambridge on Saturday. http://www.junction.co.uk/artist/4755 It follows a performance the night before in Norwich, where I will be performing a live alternative soundtrack to Jan Svankmajer’s 1971 film, Jabberwocky.Continue reading “‘Harmony’ extract at The Junction on Saturday”
I will be performing a duck-specific version of One Minute Birdwatching in Ely, on Saturday 15th September 11am-3pm (on the hour): http://www.adec.org.uk/index.php?adec/eventdetail/day_with_a_duck_helen_stratford
I surveyed the different floor surfaces at Firstsite, Colchester, to determine which were best for making a pin resonate when dropped. It seems the best surfaces were a kind of stone-effect vinyl which allowed the pin to bounce a little. This made the metal resonate, so the pin sounded sharper and more bell-like.
On 23rd June I’m performing at Firstsite, Colchester, as part of the Love Architecture festival. I’ll be testing out the floor surfaces, with a special version of Hear a Pin Drop Here and mapping the electromagnetic hotspots with my DIY Electromagnetism Detector. It’s free, come along! http://www.lovearchitecture.org/event.html?event=290
I’ve just submitted my One Minute Birdwatching form to the fringe, in order to take advantage of the considerable early-bird discount. My performances will be by the fountain in West Princes Street Gardens at 9.30am and 1.30pm every day from Saturday 4th August to Thursday 9th August.
