Moves Opening Night

May 22, 2010 | By | No Comments

Photo documentation of the Moves 10 launch in April where I performed a VJ set alongside sound scientist Tom Rea Smith (Amos) and TV Lux man Tristan Brady-Jacobs. It’s really nice to see how it looked to the audience, especially the Tangram-making section, which I couldn’t see at all due to my wrestling with those darn puzzles.

"I walk the line"

February 28, 2010 | By |

Artist Thomas Shephard gives a performance exploring public / private space in the city centre. ‘Walking Tour of Liverpool One’ navigates the public circumference of the privately owned Liverpool One shopping development. I was interested to document Thomas’ take on this issue, having already done some work in relation to Liverpool One, both in the The Model City and Make Your Own Liverpool projects. I will also be working one a project later this year researching the history of the site prior to it’s re-development.

“Walking Tour of Liverpool One’ was performed as part of the Bluecoats ‘View From the Grassy Knoll’ event on 27th Feb 2010. An unedited video of the full 20 minute walk can be seen here.

Fearful Symmetry

November 3, 2009 | By |

An interview with Angie Hiesl – co-artistic director of ‘TWINS – How do I know I am me?’ – talks about the process of bringing the production to Liverpool.

I spent a day or so watching the rehearsal process in this fantastic space with these surreal symmetries of people and action. It was really great to meet the team and then finally experience the performance, which had a great freedom for the audince to explore and engage and drop out as they pleased.
‘Twins’ was produced by the Bluecoat, and was performed at A-Foundation, Liverpool in July 2009.

This Sunday I will be providing some cunningly simple AV support to the Revolution of Form event at The Bluecoat. It features several poets exploring new methods of performance poetry, alongside other artists, musicians and illustrators. It has been organised by Nathan Jones, resident poet and Mercy man, who will also be performing two pieces with the support of illustrators Chris Rodenhurst and Neil Keating. Here are some pictures of our rehearsal last week. I’ll try get some better videos of the actaul show that show the buffering capture via isadora.

Music for Sleeping

Music for Sleeping flyer

The new year will begin with an interesting and relaxing event with Tom Smith (aka Amos) who presents his Music for Sleeping project, first performed at View Two Gallery last year. As a member of the audience I was treated to a comfy space to lie down and soak up the surround experience of Tom’s soundscapes whilst meditating on the textured imagery beamed on the gallery ceiling by VJ Pistol Pete, now sadly departed. It was a truly lovely experience. This time round its at the Bluecoat, and I will be helping provide the light show with Pete’s original material as well as my own stuff, and the audience will once again get the fill in the bit inbetween. And its on a Sunday! I implore you to come.

Nathan Jones and Wave Machines – 'The Barman'

March 17, 2008 | By | No Comments

Video document from my one-shot video project, ‘The Shoot Out Project’, as performed by Mercy poet Nathan Jones and Liverpool band Wave Machines at the Bluecoat opening weekend. The single-shot aproach is something I’ve been working with for a while now, but is perhaps best shown in the work of Vincent Moon and the Take Away Shows.

My good friends Chris Rodenhurst (Sketchybeast) and Hannah Peel (Kinetic Fallacy) will be performing together on Sunday 16th March at the opening of The Bluecoat arts centre in Liverpool. Chris will be showing a slideshow about a boys journey into the mouth of a tiger(!) whilst Kinetic Fallacy provide the music, before drawing live and large to Ms Peel’s creation of loops and melodies. I will be filming this drawathon and also selling 10p raffle tickets to win some black pudding and a set of Sketchybeast postcards.More of Chris’ work can be seen at Sketchybeast.com, Hannah’s music can be heard both at her own website – hannahpeel.co.uk – and at kineticfallacy.co.uk
