Two films below: the first is an excerpt from the performance I did at the Black Hather Club a couple of weeks ago, and the second I've created to accompany my piece tightrope walker which was premiered in November. Enjoy!
I've contributed a new track to the latest project form Cities and Memory, which is online now.
Sacred Spaces reimagines field recordings made in churches, temples, and other sacred spaces around the world.
My track, "Prayer and Void", is based on a recording made in Southwark Catherdral by Maria Papadomanolaki.
You can hear my version and the original below, and the whole poject is avaiable at the Cities and Memory site.
I've made a new album. It's a one-take, no overdubs guitar recording. The title's a riff on Woody Guthrie's famous slogan,"This machine kills fascists" which was written on his guitar. We seem to be living in a very dangerous and frightening time and music seems an inadequate response, but we have to work with whatever tools we have.
