This week The Noise Upstairs are screening the latest edition of their lockdown video series ‘The Noise Indoors’ – curated by me! I invited four really great artists to record a set for it: Tullis Rennie, Rachel Musson, Sophie Cooper and Sam Andreae. The episode premieres at 8pm on Thursday 17th September from the link below….join us! And it will be available to watch again, along with the rest of the series, after the screening.
A new set is now up on the site! Duo with Johnny Hunter from BRÅK last November. Possibly our first duo set? Hopefully not the last anyway. It’s available as a name your price download, with the income split between Johnny and me as per usual. Check it out:
Johnny has also made an extract available in video form:
The Sheffield artist Gillian Whiteley (aka Bricolage Kitchen) has been doing a lockdown series called ‘Isolation Improv Drawings’. She asks improvisers to send her a recording of them playing a short piece, then listeners to it and produces a charcoal drawing to the music. Gillian approached me a few weeks ago, and the finished collaboration is below. Very happy with this!
Rob Thorpe of Summit, who put us on in Salford a few weeks ago, filmed and recorded this piece from our set. A nice record of the Ripsaw Catfish tour! More to come soon.
I just found this video of a duo set with Benedict Taylor from last year, when we played at the excellent Scaledown night at the King & Queen in central London. Really pleased with the music!
A video has surfaced, on the Mopomoso YouTube channel, of my set with Alex Ward last September. The whole thing is here – I remember it being pretty full-on and a lot of fun!
The second video from our Vortex gig in September last year: another audience-eye view, and this time it’s ‘A Glorious Monster’. I made this one black and white and I’m kind of into it!
We filmed the Sloth Racket gig at The Vortex last week, and I’ll be posting some videos from it online over the next few months. Here’s the first one: Octopus…
You can hear another version of this on A Glorious Monster.
